Fused Deposition Modeling


Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology eliminates traditional design and manufacturing limitations. From design to functional thermoplastic prototypes in a few short hours, the process can take weeks off of the production timeline. FDM Technology makes it possible to get your products to the market faster.

With FDM thermoplastics prototypes you can test form, fit and function to catch and correct design changes early in product development.


  1. 1) Pre-Process.
    Stratasys software prepares your 3D CAD data for the FDM build process.
  2. 2) Manufacturing Part.
    Thermoplastic build and support material is precisely deposited layer-by-layer, creating your functional prototype.
  3. 3) Remove Supports.
    Support material is easily removed in a hands-free water-based tank, or break it away by hand.
