As an engineer or designer, it can be tough to know which manufacturing process or material will best translate your designs in a physical prototype. To help teams deepen their understanding of the different technologies and materials available to them on the Fictiv platform, we launched our new Capabilities Guide: an online resource to explore the different fabrication processes, materials, and finishing options available on Fictiv’s on-demand manufacturing platform.

Here’s an overview of what you’ll find in the Capabilities Guide:

Explore Fictiv Manufacturing Processes

In the Capabilities Guide, you’ll find information on each of our manufacturing technologies, including FDM, Polyjet, and SLS 3D printing, CNC milling and turning (lathe), and urethane casting.

On each of these pages, you’ll find a general overview about the material, material properties and a downloadable datasheet, design recommendations for each material, including max part size and min wall thickness, and related resources from our Blog and Hardware Guide.

Explore Fictiv Material Finishing Options

Our range of materials can be finished to achieve a variety of textures and aesthetics. In this section of the Capabilities Guide, you can browse the different material finishing options across 3D printing and CNC machining and find an overview of the finishing process, material options for each process, and related resources from our Blog and Hardware Guide.

Introduction

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
