How Does FDM Work?
FDM is a filament-based technology where a temperature-controlled head extrudes a thermoplastic material layer by layer onto a build platform. A support structure is created where needed and built in a water-soluble material.
Why choose FDM?
The great advantage of FDM is the durable materials it uses, the stability of their mechanical properties over time, and the quality of the parts. The production-grade thermoplastic materials used in FDM are suitable for detailed functional prototypes, durable manufacturing tools and low-volume manufacturing parts.
Ideal applications for FDM
Low-volume production of complex end-use parts
Prototypes for form, fit and function testing
Prototypes directly constructed in production materials
