Fused Deposition Model

FDM 3D printing creates strong and durable parts out of most industrial grade thermoplastics. It is widely used for prototypes, final products and concept models.

FDM Advantages

  • Consistently and accurately creates geometric structures
  • Parts with great stability and durability
  • Wide variety of thermoplastics

FDM Applications

FDM printed parts are used for a massive amount of applications across industries.

From prototypes to final parts, companies in the automotive, aerospace, medical, maritime and railway have already adopted FDM as a manufacturing process.

How does the FDM 3D printing process work?

FDM works by extruding the melted material through the print nozzle. The material hardens as it gets layered.
