MATERIALS

ABS
A low-cost engineering plastic widely used for pre-injection molding prototypes.
Acrylic
Scratch-resistant plastic material, often used for tanks, panels, and optical applications.
Aluminum
Available in 6061 or 7075 alloys. Excellent strength-to-weight ratio, low cost, and highly recyclable.
360 Brass
Excellent machinability with minimal tool wear. A great choice for gears, lock components, and ornamental applications.
Copper
Excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, which makes it great for electrical applications
Delrin
A low-friction, high-stiffness material that's wear and moisture resistant.
HDPE
An excellent electrical insulator that is also moisture and chemical-resistant.
Nylon
A general purpose material that resists both frictional and chemical wear.
Polycarbonate
Heat-resistant, impact-resistant, flame-retardant, and one of the most recycled plastics in the world.
Polypropylene
A hard plastic with good chemical resistance and electrical insulation properties.
PTFE (Teflon)
A very slippery plastic used in low friction applications such as bearings.
Stainless Steel
A workhorse of a material with excellent strength and corrosion resistance.
1018 Steel
A mild, low carbon steel. Magnetic and heat treatable. Useful where high strength is not required.

TOLERANCES

Drawings accepted here

Upload your drawing to our platform and save time communicating design intent. We’ll ensure the following features are made-to-spec:

  • Tolerance variations as low as +/-0.025mm (0.001")
  • Tapped hole call-outs (Metric, UTS, NPT)
  • Critical features (bearing surfaces, reamed holes, snap fits, etc.)

CNC Milling

We offer both 3 and 5-axis machining capabilities. To optimize for speed of production, we recommend minimizing the number of setups to leverage 3-axis machining.

We accept the following minimum and maximum part sizes.

CNC machining service compound surfaces
Compound surfaces

Compound surfaces (also known as organic or spline surfaces) are no problem with Fictiv, so long as other minimums are met.

CNC machining service internal radius
Internal Radius

We support features with internal radii down to 0.4mm (0.016").

CNC machining service hole diamter
Hole Diameter

We can drill holes as small as 0.5mm (0.020") in diameter.

CNC machining service hole depth
Hole Depth

Our maximum drillable hole depth is 12x the drill bit diameter.

CNC machining service feature depth
