Sheet Metal Fabrication For Engineers


Ponoko’s sheet metal fabrication service makes custom cut metal products from your digital product designs for businesses and agencies.


What can you make with custom sheet metal fabrication? Oh so much. Things such as jewelry, electronic enclosures, signs, art, models, toys, robots, lighting, desk and office items, housewares, kitchen products, business gifts, promotional products and whatever other amazing ideas you can dream up using custom metal parts.


To get started with metal fabrication, simply upload your product design and select from our range of sheet metal materials including stainless steel, brass and copper. Next, you’ll get an instant online quote for metal cutting your ideas. If it’s a go, we’ll fabricate your designs with precision, package them with care and ship directly to your door. And since there’s no minimum for custom metal fabrication, you can make anywhere from 1 product to 100,000.


Our designers will turn your 2D vector designs into real products by laser cutting and engraving your designs on our sheet metal materials, with 0.1mm laser precision.
With a standard turn around period of 2 weeks (free), you can have your custom product in your hands in no time.
You can order just 1 small sheet to get started, or 100,000 to keep rocking. And anything in between.
Order only when you need it. Eliminate your need to keep stock. Less waste this way too.
Don't spend a cent until your design and price is just right. Get quotes for your endless design iterations using our online instant quoting service.
If we stuff up, we'll re-make and re-ship your custom product for free. And we'll be so upset for upsetting you, that we'll flog ourselves for a week.

What Is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication (via laser cutting and laser engraving) is a digital making method available online from Ponoko.

Laser cutting is a subtractive manufacturing technology that uses a high-power laser beam to cut flat-sheet materials, such as cutting sheet metal. A computer directs this laser to follow the cutting line provided in your digital design. The high-precision laser vaporizes a cut line through the sheet metal, leaving a 90-degree high-quality cut-edge finish.

Laser engraving is similar, but instead of using the laser beam to cut through the sheet metal, it engraves the surface of the stainless steel, brass or copper. Following the engraving line or area in your digital design, the laser vaporizes a thin layer of the sheet metal surface, exposing what lies beneath. With metal manufacturing, the result is a more textured finish.

You can use custom metal fabrication to turn your designs into custom metal products by using .
