"the  action or process of manufacturing or inventing something"

Fabrication is the process of working with materials to create individual parts, assemblies, or large-scale structures and includes a correspondingly wide range of skills, processes, and tools.


Modern manufacturing processes, though diverse and specialized, can be categorized as additive or reductive machining, forming, cutting, or joining processes. Today's shops include a number of machine tools capable of creating a precise, useful workpiece from many approaches.
