GD&T 101: An Introduction to Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing
How to Accelerate Your Engineering Builds (and Ensure You Get Parts That Fit)
CNC Machining Materials
ABS is a low-cost engineering plastic, widely used for pre-injection molding prototypes. CNC machined ABS is a great option for production-like parts, where detail and mechanical properties are important.

McMaster Part Number
ABS has a somewhat matte finish (think lego bricks) and can be painted. Certain faces may appear more shiny depending on their geometry and how they’re machined. If painting ABS parts, finish will be dependant of the choice of paint.

Cost Saving Tip
To reduce costs, limit the number of part setups, the number of inspection dimensions or tight tolerances, and deep pockets with small radii.
