General Updates

We're planning our biggest promotion ever: Free Part Day. Keep an eye on the blog for more details.
We now published a Quick Guide to the Big Blue Saw Designer in the FAQ section of the website. This is a brief tutorial and reference to help you get started using the Big Blue Saw Designer.
We've updated our FAQs to include a bunch of new information about laser cutting.
We are happy to announce a new feature: My Files. If you are a registered user and are logged in, any file you're working on in the Big Blue Saw Designer will automatically be saved to My Files.

This benefits you in several ways:

  • You can refine a design when you need to. You can come back days or weeks later to make a modification to your design.
  • You can download your file to work with the offline version of Big Blue Saw Designer.
  • You can upload files to be stored on our server. Your files will go whereever you do.

We've updated the Big Blue Saw Designer to include a few new features to make it easier to use than ever. The changes are as follows:

Improved dragging of drawing elements. You can now easily drag several selected drawing elements at once.

Improved snap-to-grid allows you to snap the moved item back to the original position.

Improved keyboard shortcuts:

  • Ctrl-X: Cut
  • Ctrl-C: Copy
  • Ctrl-V: Paste
  • Ctrl-Z: Undo
  • Ctrl-Y: Redo
