We accept many vector-based files such as:
Raster vs Vector
Some applications and graphic utility programs such as Adobe Photoshop allow a pixel-based image to be saved as an EPS file. This is called "EPS for Placement" or "Placed EPS" representation of the file. It is also known as a "faux EPS" for placement and sizing only. This "faux eps" is a value in Photoshop for saving a clipping path within an otherwise continuous-tone image file. Some other common raster file formats are BMP, GIF, JPEG and TIFF. Raster image files can be laser engraved onto a variety of materials such as acrylic, wood, glass etc. The quality of finished products depends on the resolution of the image. Higher resolution (300 dpi)means better laser-engraved image.
Vector files are more versatile and flexible. Vector graphic formats create, execute and store their images as mathematical calculations of descriptions and coordinates. The most well-known of the vector formats is EPS or EPSF (for Encapsulated PostScript format). An image created as an EPS vector can be scaled to any size without loss of resolution. A vector file is sometimes called a geometric file. Most images created with tools such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw are in the form of vector image files. Vector image files are easier to modify than raster image files. Vector files are required for all laser cutting, etching or engraving.
For your convenience, we can convert any image files into beautiful vector artwork at a nominal charge.
Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) is a standard file format for importing and exporting PostScript files. An EPS file can contain any combination of text, graphics and images. Since it is actually a PostScript file, it is the most versatile file format that is available. Currently, there is no application that is capable of taking a drawing that was not created from inception as a vector file and save it as an editable EPS.
AutoCAD DXF (Drawing Interchange Format, or Drawing Exchange Format) is a CAD data file format, developed by Autodesk as their solution for enabling data interoperability between AutoCAD and other programs. DXF is a two-dimensional graphics file format supported by virtually all PC -based CAD products. DXF files can be either ASCII (DXF) or binary format (DXB).
If you export our Solidwork file into DXF file, please use 2D polyline as option. Do not use SPLINE. All curves will be cut as faceted lines.
Depending on your Solidwork version, compatibility may be an issue.
It is best if you can draw a 1" x 1" square in the drawing for scale reference and verificaion.
