Frequently Asked Questions

Product Queries

What tolerance do you cut to?

We cut to a tolerance of +/- 1mm. Tighter tolerances can be agreed upon under arrangement.

Can I determine the grain direction for wood?

You can. When ordering your wood, select the direction of the grain. A preference for grain direction will incur a cost added to the total, excluding delivery.

Can you cut any shape into plastic or wood?

We can cut any shape into acrylic or wood.

What's your standard radius corner?

Everything is cut square unless specified otherwise (if you have selected rounded corners). The default selection is a minimum value of 5mm. The internal corner radius on cutouts (non adjustable) is 3mm.

How do I measure for cutouts?

If you require shapes to be cut out from your items, you can configure this just by using the order form in the store. After selecting either Rectangle or Circle, insert the dimensions of the hole to be cut, and its position (measured from the sides of the piece to the sides of the cutout - not the center for circles).

For more complex cutouts, you will need to provide a diagram with clearly marked dimensions, or a ‘cut-ready file’. Choose ‘Uploads’ for cutouts, select how many cutouts are needed, and then add your file.

How many holes do I need in my acrylic if I am installing it onto something?

One per corner should be sufficient for smaller pieces. You might want to consider an extra hole in the middle of your sheet if it is larger.

Can I cut acrylic myself?

While it is possible to cut acrylic sheets yourself, we do suggest that you request it cut-to-size before ordering as we can expertly and safely meet your requirements. We use a variety of tools here at Cut My, including saws, routers and lasers and our staff have plenty of safety equipment and knowledge of the correct techniques for cutting acrylic sheets. If you must cut acrylic sheets yourself, you will need a skill saw with an acrylic blade or a router to prevent chipping. If you cut our acrylic yourself, we cannot accept a return or accept responsibility for any damage to the product.

What's the difference between acrylic and Perspex?

Perspex is a brand name. It is the same as acrylic.

What's the difference between acrylic and polycarbonate?

Polycarbonate is a stronger alternative to acrylic. Take a look at our Acrylic vs. Polycarbonate guide for more details.

What is the largest sheet size you can cut to?

Each material has a maximum sheet size which can be found under the height and width of the sheet.

Do you offer bulk order discounts?

For large orders (multiple boards of material), please head to our trade page for more information on how to enquire about pricing and purchasing.

Why is my order late?

If you are not going to be in, a clear note on the front door really helps the couriers.
