Let's make a nice project together! We need the following information to get this started:
- What you want cut out or etched.
- The size in millimeters.
- Which material and color.
Accepted file types for laser cutting, laser etching, and paper/vinyl cutting:
- DXF (compatible with AutoCAD version 2011 or earlier -- make sure it's exported as 2D)
Text should be converted from a font to outlines or curves (often called breaking apart text to lines or polylines in CAD or converting text to curves in other programs). Otherwise, if we do not have the font you are using our system will substitute your font with a different one and it will not yield accurate results for your final product.
Accepted file types for laser etching:
Note that all files need to be at least 300dpi @ the size you wish to have the etch. Raster-based files cannot be "blown up" as you cannot add pixels to an image already rasterized. An example of this is downloading a small 72dpi image off the internet and wanting that etched at 200% larger size -- it will not yield acceptable results. We will need to verify the file's integrity and compatibility before running the job. Your proof will be reasonably accurate to the final results.
Use the below file types for sending files for use:
- BMP (designed @ size and @ at least 300dpi)
- PSD (designed @ size and @ at least 300dpi)
