Printing with FDM gives you:

  • Production-grade thermoplastic ABS in a variety of colors
  • Fast turnaround for rapid prototypes and one-off parts
  • Good material strength in certain orientations

Applications:

  • Functional prototypes and concept models to test fit, form, and function
  • Jigs, fixtures, and tooling
  • Low volume part production
  • Intricate geometries and cavities not feasible with traditional manufacturing
Technical Details

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is the trademarked term for fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing. FDM 3D printers build parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic material. Utilizing FDM technology, Avid can produce strong ABS parts and prototypes with very quick turn-around times. Our Statasys FDM printers feature dual extrusion heads to print both ABS filament and water-soluble support material for constructing complex geometries.
