Cost Effective – Real Thermoplastics

Whether you’re function testing or need an end-use part, fused deposition modeling is perfect for parts that have a job to do. FDM is the only additive manufacturing technology that produces parts from standard thermoplastics with high heat, stress and impact resistance. Because of their durability, FDM materials are ideal for 3D printed tooling and fixtures.
