When ordering material cut-to-size, you are now able to easily send both the drawings and NC files for all of the required parts to your supplier. This will not only save you time but eliminates the risk of human error, ensuring your suppliers can quote accurately and efficiently.
This is especially useful for cut-to-size orders that are fully processed by the suppliers. For example, many fabricators fully subcontract the processing of their detail material, such as connection plates and angles. Providing the CNC files and associated drawings with the purchase order eliminates a manual step for these fabricators.
