CNC Machining FAQs

What is your typical lead time for CNC machining orders?

Fictiv provides a variety of lead times to match your budget while maintaining your project timeline. We can supply CNC parts as quickly as two days.

What tolerances can your CNC machines achieve?

Our machines are capable of tolerances as tight as +/- 0.0002 inches.

What types of materials work with your CNC machines?

Our instant quoted materials can be found here. Not seeing what you are looking for? You can always request a custom material through our custom RFQ process.

How do you ensure the confidentiality and security of our designs and intellectual property?

Fictiv is SOC 2 Type II Certified (SOC 2). Proof of certification can be supplied upon request. Learn more here!

Can you accommodate rush orders or expedited delivery?

Speed is standard at Fictiv. We offer a variety of costs and lead times to match your requirements. However, if you require faster delivery for a specific quote, please reach out to your sales representative to see if we can accommodate your request.

Are you able to work with complex geometries or 2D drawings?

Fictiv not only supports complex geometries, but we pride ourselves on being able to produce and deliver complex parts. Our platform enables 2D drawing uploads and generates 2D drawings. Our quoting engine then analyzes the drawings for configuration details and special callouts.

Can you assist with design optimization for manufacturability in CNC machining?

Our platform provides free Design for Manufacturability (DFM) feedback pre-order on all quotations. There are two categories of this feedback: 1. “Warning” indicates a design that requires a closer look, but can still proceed with ordering. 1. “Failure” indicates the component has a significant risk of failure during manufacturing. In this case, a design revision must be uploaded prior to check-out. We also have a team of engineers available to provide DFM feedback via email or phone.

What certifications or industry standards do you adhere to in your CNC machining processes?

Fictiv is ISO 9001 certified, ISO 13485 compliant, and has NADCAP and NABL approved manufacturing partners.
