We end up turning all files into DXF, though generally recommend sending a copy in whatever format you've created the original files in so we can double check. Ai (Adobe Illustrator) is most common. DWG, CDR, and SVG files work as well. If you are converting from any file format to any other, we recommend that you include some verifiable shape. For example, make a 1 inche circle that we can use to check scale.
Okay, so you're called SF Laser and you're in Oakland? Yes, yes, we know. Our $7 sq' location was awesome, agreed. It was not sustainable though. Moving to Oakland allowed us to expand, add a second laser, and not raise our prices. We made this move with the customer in mind. We are looking forward to new collaborative workspaces that might come online in the city and allow us to have a presence in the city as well sometime in the future. For now we are making at least 3 trips across the bridge each week. Yes, we do charge for the service, but if you're in a pinch and need us, we'll be there.
