"I liked the automated process. Basically, if I had to get custom quotes from a human every time I had a new design, it wouldn't be worth my time to do make my products."
Getting wood parts cut by a laser cutter is complex as choosing the right type of wood is critical. For example, natural wood lacks internal consistency meaning it cuts unpredictably, while others burn and combust when heated with a laser beam. At Ponoko, we have a carefully curated collection of over 200+ engineered materials, including various types of wood, that are perfect for laser cutting. To make laser cut wood selection easier, you can even contrast and compare different materials on our online software powered system that provides key information including density, electrical conductivity, and tensile strength.
To accelerate the development of projects using wood parts, we have a software-powered service that automatically calculates the cost of uploaded designs while also enabling material comparison. Thus, parts can be uploaded, DFM, quoted, and purchased in minutes. Orders placed before 11 AM in quantities under 100 will be manufactured same day. Customers in the San Francisco Bay Area will also receive their order that very same day, while customers elsewhere in the US will receive them next day. If we can’t deliver your parts within this timeframe, we will refund your delivery costs.
Many of our customers lead their industries whether it is in robotics, rocketry, AI, or satellites, and they all choose us thanks to our ability to deliver precision wood parts on the same day of ordering. This rapid speed of manufacture reduces the time to develop new ideas from weeks to just days, and in industries where time to market is a key factor, the ability to get a product out weeks or months faster can make or break a business case. Of course, we also produce parts in volume … hence, prototype wood parts can quickly be scaled up to many thousands without needing to make any design changes.
