Design Guide: Geometry

Overall Part Size

Fotofab typically produces parts from metal sheets that measure 12 inch (305 mm) by 18 inch (457 mm). The overall size of the parts we make can vary from a single part occupying an entire sheet to those yielding several thousand pieces per sheet. Depending on the metal required, the largest part we can manufacture is 24 inches (482 mm) by 38 inches (965 mm). The smallest part that we can make is dependent on the parts geometry and thickness.


Part Configuration

The Fotofab Process places no limit on the complexity of your parts configuration as long as the dimensions and tolerances along the plane of the part are within our capability, as explained in the next section. We specialize in chemical metal etching and photo etched parts with speed, cost and precision the primary benefits of an etching solution.
