Selecting Fused Filament Fabrication

Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) also know as Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is popular because of it's variety of available thermoplastic resins.

Benefits:
  • Variety of thermoplastics
  • Chemical resistant materials.
  • Heat resistant materials
  • High impact materials
  • Economical for large parts or thick wall parts.
Applications:
  • Presentation models
  • Architectural models
  • Engineering test models
  • Metal casting patterns
  • Urethane casting patterns
  • Assembly fixtures

Types of FFF Parts

Basic
Parts that are per the process with no secondary operations. This type of part can be used for fit and function and has the quickest delivery.
Custom
Custom parts include secondary operations. These can include painting, decorating, texturing, and threaded inserts. Call to discuss with an application engineer.
