CNC Router Cutting
Our modern facility houses cutting-edge, high-speed Computer Numerical Control (CNC) 3 x AXIS machinery.

To get a quote please fill out the form and we'll swiftly get back to you.
To maintain our low pricing we require a prepared file for cutting (or very close to it). Our CNC uses the following file formats:
.DWG, .DXF, .3DM, .STL, .OBJ, .EPS, .AI, .PDF files. If you can't get your work into these formats, email us and our knowledgable and friendly team will help you.
Our CNC can cut up to 1220mm wide x 2440mm long x 200mm thick.
- Please save Autocad .DWG files as version 2000. Google Sketchup files can be sent but leave shapes flattened, do not use the push/pull function.
- Intersecting curves and lines need to connect, unintentional broken vectors will require welding (joining). Lines on top of each other can cause problems. Polylines with thicknesses should be set to thickness zero.
