Quick Tips For Laser Cutting File Preparation

Here are some quick points about preparing your files for laser cutting:

  • Create files in a vector format like; .ai, .eps, .dxf & .dwg
  • Preferred scale is 1:1
  • Place different actions on different layers (i.e. cutting versus marking)
  • Different colors for different actions help but are not required
  • Delete un-needed elements
  • ID your material and thickness
  • Call out tolerances
  • Call out any required offsets (a perfact size part can be delivered if requested)
