Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Product description:

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.
