What is FDM?
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is one of the most common 3D printing processes today.
The technology builds 3D printed objects by moving an extrusion nozzle over a build platform. The process involves the use of thermoplastic material that reaches melting point. Subsequently, the filament is then extruded to create a 3D object layer by layer along a specifically determined path.
FDM is widely adopted due to its low cost and fast turnaround time in comparison to other additive manufacturing technologies. The 3D printing process is clean and simple to use. Therefore, it is highly suitable for home and office use.
As the technology is widely accessible, it has a large range of thermoplastic filaments and materials available for selection. One of the key benefits of FDM is that its materials are highly durable. Their mechanical properties are also stable over time. Therefore, the production-grade thermoplastic materials used in FDM are suitable for detailed functional prototypes, end-use parts, durable manufacturing tools as well as low-volume manufacturing parts.
Additive3D Asia is the authorised distributor for FDM 3D printers such as Cubicon Single Plus and Cubicon Style.
We can print up to 914 x 609 x 914 mm in one piece with our industrial machine. If you require parts larger than this, our professional team is able to print and assemble parts larger than this dimension.
ULTEM™ 9085 CG resin features a high strength-to-weight ratio, high thermal and chemical resistance, and flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) ratings. ULTEM™ 9085 CG resin possesses documented traceability from filament back to raw material lot number.
ULTEM™ 1010 resin offers superior tensile strength and excellent chemical and thermal resistance for an FDM thermoplastic. Certified grade is biocompatible and approved for food contact with NSF 51 and ISO 10993/USP Class VI certifications.
ABS-M30 is 25 to 70 percent stronger than standard ABS, making it ideal for concept modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and end use parts. It features significantly stronger layer bonding than ABS and greater tensile, impact and flexural strength.
Outdoor-use production parts benefit from the strength, color choice and UV resistance of ASA material. From electrical housings and brackets to sporting goods and automotive prototypes, ASA’s ease of use also make it a great choice for iterative design.
3D Printing Processes
Short for Fused Deposition Modeling, FDM is one of the most commonly adopted additive manufacturing technologies today due to its low cost and efficiency.
Great for products that require a smooth finish and high accuracy. SLA is also a popular choice for creating prototypes for clear parts, including bottles.
Capable of printing multiple materials from flexible to rigid in one part. 3D prints at a high speed, with extremely high accuracy and a smooth surface finish.
SLS is a powder-based 3D printing technology suitable for building parts that require high durability and complex geometries as it does not need any form of support.
Similar to SLS, Multi Jet Fusion also utilizes powder to 3D print objects. One advantage is that parts produced by MJF are stronger and more precise compared to SLS.
