FDM Fused Deposition Modeling (FFF)

Standard [PLA] e Hi performance [ABS – ULTEM – PC – NYLON12]

The FDM printing process starts with a string of solid material called the filament. This line of filament is guided from a reel attached to the 3D printer to a heated nozzle inside of the 3D printer that melts the material.
Once in a melted state, the material can be extruded on a specific and predetermined path created by the software on the computer.
As the material is extruded as a thin layer of the object on this path, it instantly cools down and solidifies – providing the foundation for the next layer of material until the entire object is manufactured.
