Where Function Meets Form

What is FDM 3D Printing?

Fused Deposition Modeling (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.

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.
