Fused deposition modeling is a form of additive manufacturing, in which successive layers of material are laid down to produce the desired shape.
The most common materials used for 3D printing are polycarbonate, PLA, ABS, Nylon, and Ultem.
Fused deposition modeling (3D printing) requires an STL file. The file type is exported from a CAD system.
The printing time is a function of the size and complexity of the design. A simple product could be printed in less than an hour while a complex design could take several days.
Their most common use is in rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing, though, depending on the product to be created and the material to be used, 3D modeling and FDM can also be viable solutions for mass production.
Our Stratasys equipment is capable of printing objects as large as 16” x 14” x 16”.
