CNC File Setup Tips

  1. Use our CNC Template to setup your files.
  2. Submit your files in .dxf format.
  3. Join all objects before exporting.
  4. Our CNC router is 3-axis. Submitted files should be “flat shot” with 2d geometry.
  5. When nesting your parts in your file, consider the depth of your material. For thicker material (>½”), leave 1” between parts as a general rule. For thinner material (<¼”), you can leave ¼” between parts as a general rule. This includes leaving a little space between your parts and the edge of the material.
  6. Know that CNC routing does not produce 90-degree interior corners. Router bits are round, and will produce a round profile as such.”
  7. Be sure to export files with an origin point, Sketchup files are particularly bad at letting objects float out into space!

“The ADX crew worked some magic and figured out how to clean up the files and get them into the CNC. What would have been weeks of tracing patterns, jigsaw cutting, sanding and matching pieces was happening in hours.”
