Words from our customers about us

The typical waterjet companies around here have the traditional quoting system. where you send them a paper drawing, you wait 3 weeks, the guy contacts you with a formal quote and it's just way too slow. In 3 weeks we usually have robots designed and built. Ray Russell - Founder, RoPro Design
I was very pleased with the say everything came out. I think the anodizing... worked very well and really gives it a nice look to it. I was very happy with the waterjet cutting... I've seen the pre-manufactured ones that you can get from the manufacturer and I think [the custom waterjet brackets] hold up just as well.
Clay Benning,The Alliance Theatre
Just received the frame. Came out perfect, I'm very impressed with the tolerance and low taper. I will definitely be coming back with many more projects.
Sean McKeown, Team Disaster Area
I have been using BBS for years and have always had great, prompt service. The ease of use of their site and material selection is why I keep coming back.
Levi Borreson, Legacy Frameworks
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.
Casey Kuhns, University of Northern Colorado

What the World Is Saying About Big Blue Saw

Roko Quad

  • Make Magazine Blog / Article 2: "Big Blue Saw is a new site that lets you create parts out of metal or plastic. You use your favorite CAD program to design a part, then upload the design to their site to get a rendered 3D image, and a quote."
  • Toolmonger: "We, on the other hand, dream about having our own waterjet cutting rig. But until that lottery-wining day comes, there’s always Big Blue Saw."
  • Bob Dold: Design of an electrically assisted human powered trike
  • Trossen Robotics: Hagetaka: A Bipedal Combat Robot custom aluminum chassis machined by sponsor Big Blue Saw
  • Todd Kumpf, Audio Infuser 4700 "I first had Big Blue Saw create a prototype out of acrylic so I could double check that my design and cutouts would work. After doing some test fits and making much-needed adjustments, I sent away for the parts to be cut out of Aluminum 6061. That was the easy part."
  • Shane Colton of MIT: "It's always fun to see your 3D model almost instantly become a real thing."
  • Charles Guan of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Equals Zero / Article 2: "By the way, Big Blue Saw is totally a thing."
  •, CAD/CAM, the DIY Builders Best Friend: "The Big Blue Saw CAD drawing program is free and easy to learn if you need a water-jetted part... I am very happy with the results."
