Fdm Printing

FDM Printing

Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) OR Fused Filament Fabrication:

FDM 3D Printing is the most widely used additive manufacturing process which involves fusion of layers of materials together in order to create a part. FDM 3d printing employs thermoplastic material as a filament to produce the best quality and strong parts with the help of a CAD model. The material is fed into the heated 3d printer end thereby melting it and creating a structure by depositing the layers of the material. FDM 3D Printing is the most commonly used process for fabricating industry grade parts. This technique is fairly simple and widely accepted.
The Biggest advantage of FDM printing is scalability and material flexibility. FDM can provide high finish standards after various post-processing methods such as polishing, painting and cold welding. Our printing services provide shorter lead times and economical cost.

How FDM works?

  • Computer Aided Design Files are required in .STL format.
  • Material is fed into the extrude. The thermoplastic material comes in the form of a spool.
  • The cold end of the printer pulls the material from the spool and pushes it into the hot end which consists of an extrusion head and a nozzle.
  • They are further connected by a computer which controls the x, y and z axis during the printing of the part.
  • The material is collected layer by layer and it cools down and solidifies.
  • When one layer is deposited by the extrusion head, it is pushed down to the build platform and a new layer is formed. This process is repeated until the part is completed.

Benefits of FDM

FDM produces parts with great precision and accuracy. The parts have a strong build and are durable which is the major reason why it is widely used.
Some other benefits include:

  • Cost effectiveness
  • Lesser lead times
  • Used for a wide range of prototyping products
