Unfinished means that we don’t provide any secondary operations on our laser cut parts. You will receive your parts freshly packed directly from the laser bed. Most materials naturally will have some blemishes on them and are not entirely scratch free. This is because material needs to be handled throughout the production process. We do take great care when handling your parts but the nature of laser cutting means that no item can be 100% guaranteed to be scratch free. Unfinished may mean that some parts may need minor linishing to remove any molten slag which could have occurred during the cutting process and may have been coated in anti-splatter to aid in the cutting process.
