Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
• Melted thermoplastic material is extruded from a heated nozzle .
• Standard materials include ABS, ASA, Polycarbonate.
• ULTEM 9085 material is heat resistant, flame retardant.
• Layer thickness can typically range from .007 to .013.
• Colored material options are available.
• Relatively good feature detail, with moderately textured surface off the machine.
• Larger sized parts can be fabricated.
