Easy to Fabricate

Plastic materials that are easy to shape

Most plastics can be shaped using woodworking machinery such as saws, routers, and drills. It’s important to use sharp blades and bits specifically designed for plastic fabrication in order to maintain low stress and to achieve a good surface finish.

ABSacetalnylon, and acrylics are easy to fabricate using saws and routers.
