Fused deposition modelling (FDM) printing builds parts layer by layer from the bottom up, by heating and depositing thermoplastic filament.
A technique invented by Stratasys more than 30 years ago, FDM is popular among modern manufacturers seeking viable alternatives to metal production, for example, where fabrication is extremely time-consuming, tooling is expensive and achieving complex shapes is difficult.
FDM uses engineering-grade thermoplastics to create accurate, repeatable, environmentally stable, lightweight but high-strength shapes faster than ever before, reducing waste and energy usage in the process.
Prints are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.
PolyJet 3D printing works in a similar way to the inkjet technique, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper it jets layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a tray.
These fine layers help to achieve exceptional detail and surface smoothness, turning out builds of final-product standard.
PolyJet can produce specialised moulds, prototypes, medical models, jigs, fixtures and other manufacturing tools, as well as incorporate the widest variety of vivid colours and materials into a single print for unparalleled efficiency and versatility in product development.
