Sendcutsend vs OSHCut - Any experiences?
« on: September 13, 2023, 05:20 PM »
For my MFT/Slab Mill integration project, Im considering the idea of designing and ordering some custom aluminum brackets to mate the two together to compare that to the cost/pain of using an 8-10' lengths of .190 aluminum angle.

Because I visited sendcutsend this morning, Facebook decided that I needed to receive ads for OSHCut (can't say I blame them for doing that, but I still think it's creepy).

OSHCut looks very similar to SCS, but I haven't found much on the FOG about them.

It appears that SCS requires flattened DXWs for bent parts and OSHCut will accept a 3D model and flatten it for you, but otherwise it appears to be a "price and see" comparison. 

Anyone have any experience using both?  Especially experience designing/ordering bent metal and customer service experiences?

I've used SCS several times with bending, no experience with the other service.

There's a thread here with some detail. Everything I ordered came out great.

The learning curve in F360 was a bit of a hassle. I'm pretty proficient in it, but needed to learn how to unfold sheet metal and get the DXF out correctly. SCS support staff was excellent in working me thru the process.

Have fun.

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!

I know what you mean about the creepy ads. Everything is connected and the walls have ears.
I checked into Tormach milling machines on my laptop a few weeks  ago, now every ad that hits my phone is for them.

Everyone I know who has used Send-Cut-Send was happy with the final product.
I've never heard of the other company though, can't help there.

Highly recommend Send Cut Send.  I've used them several times with great results.

I design in CorelDraw and export as a DXF file.
