The advantages of Fused Deposition Modeling
Good mechanical resistance
The resistance of parts printed by Fused Deposition Modeling allows to use them for assembly.
Fused Deposition Modeling PLA allows to create parts at lower cost.
Preservation of geometric shapes
No deformation risk at all, Fused Deposition Modeling guarantees preservation of the parts’ geometric shape.
A thermoplastic material
Fused Deposition Modeling is a 3D printing technology which allows to manufacture parts by adding layers of material. Employed materials are thermoplastic polymers.
The machine works like an extruder, it brings the material to its fusion point to generate a thread of about 0,05 millimeters of diameter. The nozzle moving on the x, y axes allows to lay down this hot thread on one layer. The platform goes down between each sequence to pile one layer on the top of the other until creating the 3D object.
Functional parts and models
Fused Deposition Modeling is used in various fields : automobile, aerospace sector, architecture, medical sector, art … On the basis of its properties, it allows to print functional parts, but also models or prototypes.
