Starting April 18, quoting and ordering will begin moving from Big Blue Saw to the Xometry website. You'll continue to be able to get fast service and instant quotes, in addition addition to a whole host of new materials and manufacturing processes!


I've been looking for a good example of this kind of construction for a while now. The idea behind this is that you can assemble a series of thin pieces together to make a continuous, arbitrarily complex curvy surface. Of course, your accuracy will be limited by the thickness of the pieces.

This is a 3D surface function made from a series of thin pieces. It looks like cardboard. The pieces were laser cut.

I've also read about prototype rocket bells being created using a similar technique.
