FAQ/HELP

Below is the current list of materials available in our online quoting system. Keep in mind that this is just a sample of the materials we can cut using laser cutting or waterjet cutting. If you want parts made from a special fabric, plastic, metal, stone, wood, or ceramic, contact us and let us know what you'd like to have made.

Make a part with any of these materials by uploading your design or creating a design with the Big Blue Saw Designer.
