FusedDeposition Modeling (FDM) is a solid-based rapid prototyping method thatextrudes material, layer-by-layer, to build a model. The key advantage FDM isthat it is ideal for Conceptual Models, Engineering Models, and FunctionalTesting Prototypes.
FDM parts are strong and rigid makes them suitable for functional testing
Cost effective solution for small to medium size parts in shortest lead time
Dimensional stability is a key advantage of FDM prototypes.
Environmental exposure do not alter the size of the part or its features.
ABS prototypes demonstrate 80% of the strength of injection molded ABS which make them very suitable for functional testing and can be directly used as finished production parts for certain applications.
Ideal for strong parts exposed to temperature, water and many chemicals.
High level of finish can be achieved by sanding and other post processing techniques.
ABS parts can be further machined, polished or electroplated.
