What is FDM Technology?

FDM Technology works with specialized 3D printers and production-grade thermoplastics to build strong, durable and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing 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.

Benefits of FDM:

  • The technology is clean, simple-to-use and office-friendly
  • Supported production-grade thermoplastics are mechanically and environmentally stable
  • Complex geometries and cavities that would otherwise be problematic become practical with FDM technology 
FDM Printers, Materials, and Services

FDM Printers

3D printers that run on FDM Technology build parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic filaments.

FDM Materials

FDM Technology uses the same tried and tested thermoplastics found in traditional manufacturing processes. For applications that demand tight tolerances, toughness and environmental stability - or specialized properties like electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility, VO flammability or FST ratings - there's an FDM thermoplastic that can deliver.
