Big Blue Saw Blog General Updates

Complete list of all our materials

We've added a FAQ page with a complete list of all materials currently available for online quotes. This list has been available before, just not as conveniently. As of now, we offer 107 different combinations of material and thickness! That's a lot, but it really only scratches the surface of what we can do. Contact us to find out about making parts from materials not on the list.

Upload your design now to try out any of the materials on the list.

Upload ANY file type

Our online quoting system has changed to allow you to send us any kind of file: a sketch, photo, or drawing in whatever format you have. We'll still offer instant quotes and ordering for PNG, GIF, DXF, and Big Blue Saw Designer files, but now, we'll help you out with your design no matter what file type you've got.

If upload a file that can't be automatically quoted, you can optionally provide your contact information along with some information about what you'd like to have made. We will be able to get in touch with you in 1-2 business days to help you get an estimate, quote, or even a completed CAD file ready for manufacturing.

Laser Cut Polyester Twill Now Available

Big Blue Saw keeps increasing your options for materials by offering 5 colorful adhesive polyester twill fabrics. These materials have a sticky back with a peel-off protective coating, so you can stick your shapes anywhere. Plus, they can be easily ironed on to fabric for a permanent, washable bond! It's a great material for easily making team or corporate logos, as well as a myriad of other decorative uses.

Make a custom polyester twill piece using the Big Blue Saw Designer or upload an existing design now.

Support For Engraving in DXF Files

Our online quoting system now allows you to add engraving to your parts when using a DXF file. Just create a new layer called "Engraving" and add all of the things to be engraved to that layer. Note that we don't yet support the HATCH (filled area) or TEXT entities in DXF files.

For example, in QCad, just click the "+" button in the layers list to add a new layer:

You will be prompted to enter the name of the new layer. Enter "Engraving" (without the quotes). Your layer list will now look like this:

Finally, add any lines, arcs, etc. to be engraved to the Engraving layer by setting their Layer attribute (Modify -> Attributes -> Layer:).

Upload your DXF file now to try it out.
