CNC machined parts delivered in 3 days

Instant estimates + DFM feedback in an hour

I've ordered the same parts in the same material from Fictiv and other well-known services. The surface finish & attention to detail has always been better with Fictiv.

CNC capabilities

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.

X
Y
Z
Min.
2.5mm [0.1”]
2.5mm [0.1”]
1.0mm [0.04”]
Max.
1200mm [48”]
500mm [20”]
152mm [6”]
Compound surfaces

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

Internal Radius

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

Hole Diameter

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

Hole Depth

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

Feature Depth

We recommend a maximum depth of cut of 5x tool diameter in both metals and plastics. Chat with us if your project requires more.

CNC Turning

We offer both standard and live-tooling CNC turning. As with CNC milling, we recommend limiting the need of live-tooling to speed up the prototyping process. 

We accept the following minimum and maximum part sizes.

Diameter
Length
Min.
1.6mm [1/16”]
3.2mm [0.126”]
Max.
152mm [6”]
304mm [12”]
Feature Length

We support features with lengths up to 5x their diameters.

Hole Diameter

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

Hole Depth

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

Groove Width

Internal and external grooves must be at least 0.4mm (0.016") wide.

CNC MATERIALS

ABS

This material is a low-cost engineering plastic widely used for pre-injection molding prototypes. Easy to machine, glue, and paint.

CNC MACHINING 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.)

Don’t want to create a drawing? No problem. All parts are produced to our ISO 2768 medium standard.
