Part Drawing Requirements

  • Drawings need to be emailed in 2D .dxf or .dwg format
  • Those using 3D should ‘save as’ or ‘export’ their drawings/cut sheet to .dxf
  • Scaling must be 1:1
  • Multiply parts should be on the same drawing provided they are to be cut out of the same material
  • If there are multiple parts, have each part on separate drawing
  • Only have 1 layer on the drawing/cut sheet
  • No centerlines, center marks, fold lines, etc., only display lines that will be cut do not have duplicate lines on top of each other
  • Dimension one straight line to confirm scaling is 1:1, no other dimensions should be on the drawing
  • Remember that text or logos unless designed as a stencil will have the center unsupported parts cut out e.g. the center of O’ the inside of 8, the inside of b, etc.
  • One option if a team is in need of 2D drafting software, DraftSight Individual is free and works well https://www.3ds.com/products-services/draftsight-cad-software/free-download/
  • Substitutions for other thicknesses and materials are not part of this offer but can be quoted separately
  • Vykan will look at converting hand sketches to usable .dxf on an individual basis for a small fee if a team doesn’t have the capabilities to do so, but please treat this as a last resort, it will also delay shipping.

Gain Capabilities

Having trouble making that perfect part? We can help, by partnering with us our waterjet can help you to get the parts you have always wanted to make but could never access the right tools.

Cut Unique Materials

Waterjet cutting is a COLD cutting process, meaning there is NO heat that is generated by our CNC machine. This helps us cut a wide range of materials for all different types of purposes. Other advantages include tight tolerances and no warping or burnt edges! We are also very smooth when compared to other methods!

Spare Bots, Practice Bots, and Competition Bots

Take advantage of our special partnership offer with your spare and practice bots to help make the ultimate competition bot. Our offer is designed to help teams afford and experiment with Waterjet and cut down on additional machining time saving both time and money.
