A popular additive technology, FDM is capable of producing relatively low-cost parts with a variety of materials and finishing options.
3D printing applications
3D printing is a fast, versatile manufacturing method, with an array of commercial and industrial applications. Some of the most common applications for 3D printing include:
Proof of concept
3D printing allows developers to quickly create proof-of-concept models and test the suitability of different materials.
3D printing has a number of significant design benefits which allow for the fast, efficient production of complex parts as single consolidated units.
3D printing allows manufacturers to create functional prototypes of components and parts quickly, without the need for hard tooling or the practical constraints of a traditional manufacturing run.
3D printing can integrate customizable design elements to tailor parts for functionality and aesthetic.
3D printing allows manufacturers to scale production runs to exact market demands, without minimum order quantities or capital costs for tooling.
3D printing is particularly effective for manufacturing smaller, high detail components, offering speed and cost advantages over traditional production methods.
Why choose 3D printing?
There are plenty of reasons to choose 3D printing for your manufacturing project, and we can help you decide if it suits your project’s needs. Explore the key benefits and challenges of the 3D printing process:
|Speed||3D printed parts can be created quickly and efficiently.|
|Cost effectiveness||Low set-up and finishing costs make the 3D printing process cheaper than subtractive or injection manufacturing methods.|
|On-demand||3D printed parts can be created on-demand – reducing the cost of and need for physical storage.|
|Complex geometry||3D printing is capable of producing highly complex geometries and surface detailing that can’t be achieved with other methods.|
|Strength and performance||3D printing materials offer surprising strength and durability, and can be used in a variety of high-performance applications.|
|Sustainability||3D printing minimizes waste by using only the material needed to produce the part.|
|Part size||The size of 3D printed parts is restricted to the capacity of the build area.|
|Production volume||Depending on the order, 3D printing may be less cost effective per part when scaled-up for large production runs.|
|Material availability||Only certain materials are suitable for the 3D printing process, which may restrict possibilities for some manufacturing projects.|
|Post-processing work||3D printed parts often need support struts removed after the print. Parts may also need to be cured, cleaned with chemicals, sanded, or rinsed.|
