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
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.
