What is Fused Deposition Modeling?

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM or also known as FFF) is one of the most common and known methods of 3D printing. It is the one technology that offers the ability to use a wide variety of known engineering-grade thermoplastic materials commonly used in injection molding. This allows users to additively manufacture production parts with materials they are familiar with or test 3D printed prototypes using the same material they plan to use in injection molding. 

FDM utilizes strong, engineering-grade materials like ABS, Polycarbonate and ULTEM™ 9085 Resin. FDM can create production parts and functional prototypes with outstanding thermal and chemical resistance and excellent strength-to-weight ratios.

How Does FDM Work?

FDM (Monikers: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), filament extrusion, fused filament deposition, material deposition) was invented by Stratasys and works by feeding material filament to a print head that then melts the material, drive wheels extrude the melted material onto the build sheet to form a single layer; The build platform then lowers in the Z-axis by small increments so that the print head can extrude the next layer of material onto the previous layer creating a 3D object. 

First we take the CAD or STL 3D file, and within the software we slice the file into horizontal layers based on the layer height that was chosen. As a note, the layer heights currently range from 0.005" inch (Z) to 0.020" inch (Z). Larger parts, such as bumpers for an automotive vehicle may be built in thicker layer heights to reduce the build time, whereas smaller geometries such as a cell phone case could be built in a smaller layer height to take advantage of the finer detail and smaller wall thickness capabilities.

Once the software has sliced the part into layers, it will then generate the support structure that will be used for the build. Support structures are always used on the bottom layers of the model to provide separation from the build sheet as well as for overhangs or areas of the geometry that do not have sufficient model material area from the previous layer. Finally, the tool path or "raster fill" for each layer is generated. We now have a part that can be sent to the printer.

Now it is time for lights-out manufacturing. We say this as machine operators can start the printing of the part, turn off the lights, and head home. Upon arriving the next day or after the build is completed, the build sheet containing the part(s) can be removed from the machine and placed on the rack for the next step in the process. This next step may be the manual removal of support materials for our higher heat materials such as ULTEM™ resin or could involve our hands-free support removal for various materials such as electrostatic dissipative ABS (ABS ESD7) which uses soluble support that is dissolved away in our Water Works process.
