    FDM 3D Printing Technology

    FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) is a widely used additive manufacturing technology that offers durable and dimensionally stable parts with high dimensional consistency and large dimensions and competitive costs. The additive manufacturing is carried out by melting the thermoplastic solid filaments through the extruder and passing them through the mold.

    A support structure can be placed in the part by using a water-soluble material when necessary. Thanks to FDM technology, you can meet your needs for a prototype with high strength properties or conduct performance tests of your parts in the product development stage. It is a 3D printing technology with wide material options that can be produced with a semi-transparent structure or various shore hardness values to use at various temperatures.

    Besides closed-system industrial FDM 3D printers, Tridi.co also has open-system FDM 3D printers for simple and personal use.

    FDM 3D Printing Materials
    • It is preferred in applications requiring dimensional stability and high strength.
    • It offers the opportunity to print pieces up to 1 meter as a single piece.
    • It is more rigid and harder material compared to ABS material.
    • Its tensile strength is higher than that of the standard ABS material.
    • Its dimension stability is much better.
    • It is similar to ABS material in terms of finishing and strength and has PLA properties in terms of dimensional stability and stability.
    • It is preferred where flexibility is required and dimensional stability is expected from the piece.
    • Polyamide is a very durable material.
    • It is preferred in applications requiring high strength.
    • It is a flexible material.
    • It can be used for applications such as rubber, gasket, and felt.
    • It is a biodegradable material.
    • Finishing and measurement accuracy is quite good.
    • It is a hard and brittle material.
    • It is the most preferred material in terms of its price/performance.
    • It is a material with high UV resistance and chemical resistance.
    • It is suitable for long-term use outdoors.
    • It has high-strength properties.
    • This material can withstand temperatures up to 220 C for a long time.
    • It has a rigid structure.
    • Its flexibility and tensile strength values are high.
    • This material can withstand temperatures up to 220 C for a long time.
    • It has a rigid structure.
    • Its flexibility and tensile strength values are high.
    • It has high-strength properties.
    • It is widely preferred in the automotive and aerospace industries.
    • It has a hard surface structure.
    • It is a more rigid and harder material compared to the ABS material.
    • Its tensile strength is higher than that of the standard ABS material.
    • Its dimension stability is much better.
    • It is more flexible but more durable material compared to the PC material.
    • It is preferred in nailed structures as it is less brittle.
    Finishing Options
    Finishing Options

    Different finishing options can be preferred according to the place and situation where the machined piece will be used. Some processes can be applied to make the model smoother, brighter, matte or corrosion-resistant. Some of these processes are listed below.

    Original Surface

    It is delivered as obtained from the machine. The supports and surface burrs are removed. Depending on the technology, traces of layers can be observed.

    Glossy ABS

    It erodes the surface of ABS materials manufactured with FDM Technology using chemical solvent. A shiny and smooth outer surface is obtained.

    Painting (All)

    The painting process in the desired RAL code is performed as obtained from the machine. Surface layer lines are not removed. The desired color tone is provided.

    Post-processing + Painting (All)

    A smooth final product is obtained by post-processing pieces in all technologies. Painting in the desired RAL code is applied. The matte or glossy surfaces can be preferred.

    Advantages & Application Areas of FDM

    Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing technology is an ideal additive manufacturing method particularly for the product performance tests to be prepared for early prototyping and the manufacturing of high-strength parts.

    You can manufacture large models that are difficult to manufacture by dividing them into multiple small parts to manufacture separately and then assembling them together. Thus, you can have durable parts with high strength and dimensional properties manufactured extremely quickly at a much lower cost. A support structure can be placed in the part by using a water-soluble material when necessary. Thanks to this support structure, the geometric constraints are reduced substantially.

    The parts manufactured by FDM technology have no hollows inside them. Thanks to this feature, this additive manufacturing technique is widely used when a flat surface is needed. The FDM 3D prints usually do not require any finishing. It exhibits high strength properties as well as chemical and mechanical strength properties, and it has a wide material diversity. Products manufactured by FDM have a rigid structure.
