Fictiv’s CNC machining service provides parts in just 3 days, via our simple online interface.
In addition to powering hardware teams with the best fabrication services, we think it’s really important to support development with prototyping and manufacturing knowledge.
Our awesome design and manufacturing teams teamed up to create a visual representation of the foundational elements of CNC machining:
Download a high-res version of the CNC Periodic Table of Elements here.
The periodic table is organized by three major categories of information related to CNC machining:
Capabilities – materials, finish, machine types
Manufacturing – cutting tools, machine manufacturers, roles
Examples/Tips – common components, design considerations
While not entirely comprehensive, this is a snapshot of fundamental CNC machining knowledge.
Here’s a closer look at each of the sections:
