Our press release is up regarding Free Part Day on August 6, 2008.

Some details:

  • We will have two stock materials/thicknesses available for making your part on Free Part Day: waterjet cut aluminum 6061 1/8 (0.125) inches thick and laser cut clear acrylic plastic, 0.118 inches thick.
  • There is a limit of one design (DXF/PNG/GIF or Big Blue Saw Designer file) per customer.
  • Designs are limited in size to 9" x 9".
  • We reserve the right to reject designs that are too complex or can't be made on the waterjet or the laser. Roughly speaking, parts that will normally cost over about $8 each in quantity 1000 when ordered through the online quoting system are not eligible.
  • You must pay the packaging and shipping costs.
  • All orders must be completed through the online ordering process.
  • Orders must be completed, including payment, on August 6, 2008.
  • We reserve the right to refuse any free part day order.
  • Keep in mind that the purpose of Free Part Day is to provide people with an introduction to Big Blue Saw's service. Please don't abuse this by attempting to go against the spirit in which this offer is made.

I am extremely interested in your free part day and would like to know when I can upload my part to take advantage of this offer. Do I need to wait until the 6th to upload or can I send my dxf file at any time?
This is probably the coolest thing I've heard of!There are so many ideas...especially since we are designing something that has never been built before!Where do we send our designs?I have the perfect part for the wall-e builder's group I want made!

Dave Schleede: the Free Part Day offer is only good for orders placed on August 6.We do encourage everyone to get started on their designs as early as possible, and to become familiar with our online ordering system in order to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible on Free Part Day.

Jawa Lunk: You can upload DXF/PNG/GIF designs to the estimator page ( or design your part using Big Blue Saw Designer (
Question, Can we make as many parts as we can fit on a 9" by 9" sheet or is the excess material forfeit if our one part does not utilize all of it?

Jeff: yes, your design can include more than one separate piece and still qualify for the Free Part Day discount.
