Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), also known as Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), is the most common type of additive manufacturing. FDM has short lead times, a relatively low cost per part, and can produce larger parts than many other additive polymer technologies. Thanks to a variety of material choices and finishing options, FDM is ideal for creating everything from quick prototypes to the final product. Our in-house FDM technologies include the Fortus 450mc and the Stratasys F900.
