It takes a digital file to make your project happen. The laser cutter uses a file made up of lines or “vectors.” The laser follows these lines either etching or cutting the material of your choice. If you have a digital vector file that is ideal. If not send us an image or whatever you have and we can help you make it into a digital vector file. IF you already have a vector file you can help cut down time and cost by laying out your file so it fits on our laser cutters’ bed. We have two laser cutters, one with a bed that is 18″ x 32″ and another with a larger bed that is 24″ X 48″. It will also speed up your project if you put the line work on different layers and make the layer names descriptive. For example: layer 01 – cut, layer 02 etch, layer – 03 sheet, etc.
We are happy to prepare your files for you, but this time will be additional to the laser cutting time for your project.
