Fused Deposition Modeling | An Introduction | A Rapid Prototyping Process | Rapid Prototyping Methodology Types
Rapid Prototyping process starts with the uploading of your STL file for a rapid quote. This Product Realization will transform your CAD drawings into plastic parts. Parts are built layer by layer in an additive process. Extrusion heads lay down thermoplastics to create each layer.

Short Run Production
Need multiples? FDM can build as many parts as you require, in the time that you need them. Cheaper than using injection molding!
Does your design contain moving parts and subassemblies? A Rapid Prototype of your assembly will mechanically operate just like the real thing.
With a max tensile strength of 10,390 psi and a max flexural strength of 16,700 psi, materials are ready for your military and high strength designs and concepts.
Small parts with complex geometry are no problem for FDM. With a max resolution of .005”, your parts will look as good as your CAD models.
