COVID-19 (coronavirus) impact: Pololu is hurting, and employees are facing layoffs. Please see this blog post from Jan, our president and founder, for more information. If you are able to help, please donate.

We are still operating and shipping all orders, but we have reduced staff on site to a skeleton crew for safety. For critical requirements, including fighting the coronavirus, please contact us so we can prioritize orders appropriately.

Please note that we have suspended our usual same-day shipping and local pickups (will-call). We are unable to offer phone support at this time, and it might take us longer than usual to respond to emails and forum posts. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding. Be kind and stay safe, everybody!

Laser cutting is ideal for quickly making custom parts out of sheets of plastic, wood, card stock, rubber, or thin steel. All you have to do is draw your design on a computer, and you can have a completely custom part delivered as quickly as the next day! Once you have your design ready, it’s easy to order a single copy, or large volumes.

With our custom part cutting service, you can quickly and economically create intricate designs that are too complex for creating by hand. You can cut smooth curves and even engrave text or logos onto your parts. The only restriction is that parts are flat, but you can make three-dimensional robots by combining multiple two-dimensional pieces. Of course, non-robot parts are welcome – our laser cutting service is great for anyone with a project requiring custom parts!

Even if you do not have access to a computer with the software necessary to draw your part, we might be able to draw your part for you.
