File Formatting

Cut Requirement Only: For cut only applications (option selected on order page), all design geometry should be designed in a single colour, line weight (thickness) should be set to ‘hairline’ (Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator) or approx 0.1mm. 

Cut & Engrave Requirement:  All designs should be either layered by process type (e.g. Layer 1 – cut profiles, Layer 2 engrave), or coloured to clarify requirement, Blue = cut, Red = engrave.  For engraving requirements, 2 options are available LINE and RASTER.  Line engrave relates to a single pass of the laser, Raster engrave relates to profiles that are scan filled.  Examples as below.

Size & Cutting Limitations

Our laser has a cutting bed or 1200mm x 900mm, cutting depth approx 300mm (we can also accommodate larger sheet materials via a bypass hatch).  Cutting power is 120W.  We predominately process non-metallic materials but we can also engrave many metals just ask for further details.
