WHAT IS FDM PRINTING?
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) is a filament based additive technology.
FDM printers are equipped with a moving print head.
At the end of the print head is the nozzle (or nozzles) that melt and extrude filament material and deposit an object layer-by-layer according to a special CODE file derived from a customers 3-D CAD model.
WHY CHOOSE FDM?
Spirol Press-In Inserts
We can add metal threaded inserts (Spirol brand) to simulate insert molded by conventional injection molding
Various types of filaments and colors available.
Threads and tolerances
Our manufacturing partners adhere to industry standards for threads and tolerances.
Finishing & post-processing
Our manufacturing partners follow our strict technical requirements for finishing and post-processing.
Applications of 3D printing
The 3D printing process offers a range of industrial applications:
HOW DOES A FDM (FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING) 3-D PRINTER WORK?
The process begins when a computer aided design (CAD) model is made. The CAD model is then imported into software that makes a CODE file. The CODE file acts as a set of instructions or as the “blue print” for the CNC controlled printer machine. The customer is required to down load a 3-D CAD model of the part they wish to have manufactured.
3D Printing Technology (FDM Service)
MATERIALS USED IN OUR 3-D FDM PRINTING SERVICE
FDM (fused deposition modeling) is the most common 3-D printing technology that offers good quality and a variety of materials, many of which are certified for regulated industries. FDM offers a fair quality finish and dimensional accuracy as well.
This process uses a filament that typically comes wound on a 1-kilogram spool and has a diameter of 1.75mm typically. Remember that this process uses the same types of raw materials as in the thermoplastic injection molding process. We Use and Carry in Stock Various Colors of 3-D FUEL Branded Filament For The Best Possible Quality- Made in USA
Standard PLA+ Filament
Standard PLA is a basic, entry-level PLA filament. It’s available in a broad color selection
Pro PLA Filament
High impact – almost equal to ABS, smooth finish, Improved heat resistance
Pro ASA Filament
Ideal material for outdoor applications and automotive applications, superior UV stability.
Pro ABS Filament
ABS filament is known for its high tensile strength, but it’s prone to certain annoying issues like warping and shrinkage.
