Our online quoting and ordering system can work with both vector and raster files, though we prefer DXF vector files.

But did you know that the DXF you upload might have an embedded raster image? Read more about it here:

Keep in mind the ability to employ a "captive nut" out of steel in an aluminum plate joint:

Thanks! I ordered some new bike parts in 1/4" 6061...
1st build: Dahon Jetstream folding bike. Quick, reliable, capable of 32mph. Light enough to lift, folds for easy transport by car/bus/train.
2nd build: RC powered 2009 Norco A-Line. Top speed 39mph. Built like a tank, it's resistant to Boston potholes, can stop on a dime, easily goes up/down curbs when necessary.
3rd build (just started): Scratch build ultimate utility bike. Based on a common power module using a NuVinci left side freewheel.

I have been very pleased with your services/deliveries ordered in the past!

Is there any way to make these sales last longer? I always would like to take advantage of them, but never have time to drop what I am doing to rush and design a part I will need in the future in less than 48 hours during the middle of a work week... I guess that the nature of them is that you post them when you have extra time/inventory for short periods, but just expressing my desire.

Thanks for your business, ecycler!

We've had many customers with this very complaint in the past. That's why we try to schedule sales pretty regularly, once a month.

Also, we pre-announce each sale a week or so before it starts to make sure our customers have plenty of time to get ready. For example, for this sale, we announced it early via:
* Twitter
* Facebook
* Google Plus
* LinkedIn
* Our mailing list

Just follow one of those, and you will find out ahead of time about upcoming sales.
