Fused Deposition Modeling: Changing Traditional Design Processes

May 13, 2015
3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), using fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology eliminates the design barriers and time to market of traditional manufacturing
3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), using fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology eliminates the design barriers and time to market of traditional manufacturing. It frees designers from the constraints of conventional manufacturing methods, giving you a chance to think differently about design.

With AM, parts can be created solely for desired form, fit, and function without the manufacturing limitations of tooling, machining, casting, and fabrication. You can use it to create prototypes, jigs and fixtures, and even production parts.

What tips do you need to know about creating 3D printed parts using FDM technology and selecting the right materials for their applications?

Download this eBook to learn how 3D printing with FDM technology makes what was once impossible, or impractical, a reality – and how AM can put your company on a path to change.
