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 3D printing 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 materials available for selection. One of the key benefits of FDM is that their 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.
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.
Other 3D Printing Processes
Stereolithography was first developed in the 1980’s. The process is often used when a smooth finish and high accuracy is required.
Polyjet is a liquid-based 3D printing technology. It is able to 3D print 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 complex geometries and high durability.
Similar to SLS, Multi Jet Fusion also utilizes powder to 3D print objects. Parts produced by MJF are stronger and more precise compared to SLS.
Full Colour 3D UV-Curable Inkjet technology has the capability to print 10 million colours, making it ideal for products such as marketing models.
