Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
FDM Delivers Functional end-User Parts Built with Production Grade Thermoplastic Materials in Days, not Weeks!
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is an additive manufacturing process commonly used for 3D modeling, prototyping and production of end-user parts. The technology developed and commercialized by Stratasys, extrudes thermoplastic filament from a coil through a heated nozzle. The melted material is deposited onto a build platform in layers along a path directly controlled by a computer-aided manufacturing software package.
FDM offers numerous advantages to rapid prototyping and manufacturing industries. It is widely recognized in the manufacturing engineering community for time and cost-savings, and is also known for offering repeatability, ensuring that your first part looks and functions exactly like the last.
