Fused Deposition Modeling is the most common method of 3D printing for rapid prototype fabrication.

FDM 3D PRINTING PROVIDES:

  • Ability to produce complex shapes and intricate geometries unfeasible with traditional manufacturing methods
  • Fast turnaround for functional prototypes and one-off parts
  • Production-grade thermoplastic ABS in a variety of colors
How Fused Deposition Modeling Works

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is the trademarked term for fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing. FDM builds parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic filament. Our Stratasys FDM printers feature dual extrusion heads to print both ABS filament and soluble support material for constructing complex geometries, such as undercuts and overhangs.
