Design File Specifications

Our machines use DXF files. If you create the drawing with a CAD program please send DXF. If the file is created in a vector graphics program please send it as AI or EPS.

CAD Files
  • Save as DXF (if using AutoCad; 2004, 2007 or R12 is acceptable)
  • Create and save drawing at full scale with only features to be cut (no drawing sheet format, no dimensions)(material outline OK)
  • Draw holes that will be tapped at tap drill size.
  • Explode all blocks and symbols.
  • Purge drawing before saving. (In AutoCad: File|Drawing Utilities|Purge)
  • We prefer to create any nesting. We can usually nest parts with 3mm ¬†spacing.
  • Provide paper drawing or additional CAD file of part with dimensions and tolerances.
  • Adobe Illustrator Ver 8.0 preferred. Send computer generated artwork as AI or EPS
  • Vector artwork, not raster/bitmap.
  • Convert Text to Outlines
  • Be sure that View|Outline shows all lines as they will be cut.
Sketches (faxing or mailing)
  • Use dark, heavy, single lines, or solid filled image.
  • Maximum size 8.5" x 11" (approx. A4 size)
Size Limitations
  • File upload is limited to 10 Mb. If you can, compress the file using Winzip (.zip).
  • For CAD files; purge before saving. For AI files; be sure that Artboard is larger than artwork.
