Acceptable File Specifications

We have a few requirements with files submitted for cutting/quoting. We accept .dxf, .dwg, .nc1 and .nc files. We also accept .pdf files but the other four are preferred. All files should have no zero length lines, title blocks or duplicate entities.

Polylines and double lines are also not acceptable and all endpoints should join and not overlap. All drawings should be drawn 1:1 and ideally have a 1000mm reference included. All measurements should be in metric units to avoid confusion.

If there are any further processes necessary (eg. pressing, welding, powder coating etc.) then please include assembly drawings with all relevant information, including assembled dimensions, cross sections and bend angles inside dimensions. Click here to see an example of what layout we prefer when submitting a drawing.


Please don’t hesitate to contact us whether you are looking to create a job, to get a quote, to send in an idea that you’d like to be drawn up or need help designing, or for any questions you may have.
