General Updates

From the blog of Canadian robot builder Roko comes this beautiful work in progress, a quadruped robot made using parts from Big Blue Saw.

Roko writes in one post "I'm still happy overall with the water-jet cutting, and would recommend it to anyone trying to make more complicated shapes or numerous parts. I wouldn’t have been able to make all of the more complicated/curvy cuts by hand as precisely and quick as the water-jet service does."

Many customers have asked that we improve and update the My Files section of the website. {yuizoom myFilesNewFeatures/resized/myFilesNewFeatures3.png|myFilesNewFeatures/myFilesNewFeatures3.png}

We've heard your requests and have added several new features, including the ability to store new file types on our server, better file management features, and smoother integration with the Big Blue Saw Designer. Read on for more details.

We have done a few updates to the Big Blue Saw Designer in order to make it easier to use. Based upon feedback from our customers, we've changed the default way that the Designer creates arcs and curves, made it easier to input and understand the geometry of parallelograms, rectangles, circles, and ellipses, and made it easy to turn a parallelogram into a rectangle.
