Stratasys 3D Printers Using FDM Technology

Introduction

Office Friendly 3D Printing Process

D2M Solutions, headquartered in Dubai offers a wide range of 3D printers, and services in 3D Printing with 3D printed durable parts with real thermoplastic using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology which is a powerful Stratasys-patented additive manufacturing method.

With FDM technology you can quickly build up concept models, functional prototypes and ready end-use parts in standard, engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics. FDM is the only professional 3D printing technology that uses production-grade thermoplastics, so parts are supreme in mechanical, thermal and chemical strength.

About FDM Technology

Stratasys founder Scott Crump invented FDM Technology more than 20 years ago, and Stratasys has continued to lead the 3D printing revolution ever since, developing a range of systems that appeal to large manufacturers, designers, engineers, educators and other professionals.

3D printers that run on FDM Technology build parts layer-by-layer by heating thermoplastic material to a semi-liquid state and extruding it according to computer-controlled paths.

FDM uses two materials to execute a print job: modeling material, which constitutes the finished piece, and support material, which acts as scaffolding. Material filaments are fed from the 3D printer’s material bays to the print head, which moves in X and Y coordinates, depositing material to complete each layer before the base moves down the Z axis and the next layer begins.

Once the 3D printer is done building, the user breaks the support material away or dissolves it in detergent and water, and the part is ready to use.

Benefits

FDM is a clean, very easy-simple to use, office-friendly 3D printing process.  Ideal for rapid parts production as real and functional parts. This technology is applicable to any industry where 3D parts or models are required. Thermoplastic used for parts production can endure exposure to heat, chemicals, humid or dry environments, and mechanical stress. Soluble support materials make it possible to produce complex geometries for any industry and cavities that were previously difficult to build with traditional manufacturing methods. It also lowers development costs, improves product quality and get new products to market faster.
