Deburring & Graining
After your blanks are cut, they optionally go to deburring and graining. Our finishing machine deburrs your parts and optionally provides a 240-grit linear grain, comparable to a #4 finish. The laser cuts without significant burr on most materials, but for parts requiring painting, welding, or other fabrication steps, adding finishing can either reduce or completely eliminate additional prep work down the line.
When you upload your parts, finishing will automatically be selected if it is supported for your part and material, although you can remove it if you'd like. Your part needs to have at least 6 square inches of surface area, and be at least 3 inches wide in at least one dimension, to allow finishing. At least one dimension of your part (length or width) must be 40 inches or less to fit in the finishing machine.
