Rapid Fabrication

The Old Way

Prices in Days, Parts in Weeks

For traditional shops, on-demand orders are a nuisance: quoting is time-consuming and requires skilled labor, setup is slow, new parts take engineering and programming time, and loading the laser, clearing the deck, and dealing with remainders is inefficient.  Additionally, creating invoices, charging credit cards, and handling office work for small metal laser-cutting jobs is time-consuming.

​Given these factors, getting a quote for custom laser cutting and fabricated parts can take days, if you get a response at all. Fabrication shops decide on a case-by-case basis whether they want to work with you or not.  They don't want your prototype or short-run order, they want production jobs, and their pricing, slow response times, and generally poor service reflect that reality.

Most fabrication shops will take small jobs reluctantly, and only with the hope that a prototype job will turn into a volume job later on.

The New Way

Prices in Seconds, Parts Tomorrow

We founded OSH Cut specifically because we were tired of the antiquated, lengthy quoting process used by metal laser cutting and fabrication services.  As engineers, we found ourselves coming up with new designs and then waiting days for pricing, and weeks for parts.

The problems associated with small-run orders are real, but instead of discouraging prototypes and treating customers poorly, we've built software that allows us to efficiently handle hundreds of orders per day.  

Our software starts by giving you, the customer, the ability to obtain instant pricing, manufacturability feedback, and order online.  But it extends behind the scenes as well - our custom software tools allow us efficiently manage material inventory, schedule jobs, create programs, print shipping labels, and handle other logistical details.  We are constantly adding new features as we discover new ways to improve our processes.

Immediate Manufacturability Feedback

The Information You Need, Right Now

Sometimes you aren't ready to order, but you need information. "Am I on the right track? Can this part be manufactured? What will it cost for a single prototype? How about 100 of them? What if I change out the material?"

Ordinarily, this is information you'd need to get from your shop via a phone call or email. For the shop, this is often a nightmare. They know they may not win your business, and the thought of investing hours of time into quoting, requoting, analyzing parts for manufacturability, and answering questions, may be a complete waste of time. It's a real problem. When you ask a shop to requote in a different quantity or material, it may involve the same or nearly the same amount of work as their first bid. And analyzing a concept part to provide a "budgetary" quote isn't always as simple as it sounds - the shop may have to draw and program your part just to determine whether they can make it for you.

The OSH Cut Way

This is where OSH Cut's processes really shine. Our system provides you with instant pricing for any number of parts, in any quantity, and in over 300 unique materials and thicknesses, as often as you need it. No waiting involved.

Our system also provides instant manufacturability feedback, so you can try your design and iterate as needed. This enables faster design iteration, more manufacturable parts, and informed decision-making from start to finish.
