What is FDM 3D Printing?

Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is an additive manufacturing process that constructs objects layer by layer using heated thermoplastic materials. A heated nozzle extrudes melted thermoplastic filament, which quickly solidifies upon deposition. The build platform descends after each layer, gradually building the object from the bottom up.

Using specialist production thermoplastics, the applications of FDM 3D printing are limitless.
From static dissipation, flame-proof and elastic materials through to carbon fibre filled and anti-bacterial materials you are sure to find a material perfect for your production requirements.
