Big  Blue Saw


Starting April 18, 2022, 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!

Casey Kuhns, a Big Blue Saw customer for several years now, is an undergraduate in the physics department at the University of Northern Colorado. I recently spoke with Casey about various robotics and aerospace projects he has worked on, as well as the tools and techniques he has used for design and construction.

Casey on designing parts for laser and waterjet machining:

I really do like using... 2D profiles for a lot of my designs. Mostly because it's just quick. Working at a machining center, it takes hours to set up your part: you machine it, you flip it, you machine it and it's real nice to just send out parts to waterjet or laser... A lot of my designs for robots started as flat stock; I try to use that as often as possible.

Casey on using Big Blue Saw:

I've really enjoyed working with [Big Blue Saw]. I've been a customer for quite some time... It was always a dream to just get things out. I've worked with other companies before you guys were around and I always kind of got this e-mail tag... It's real nice to be able to take a DXF or drawing file, throw it on the net, get an instant quote, put it in the cart, and be done with it. It's real easy to work with, especially [at] universities.
