FDM and PolyJet 3D Printing: Similarities and Distinctions

FDM or PolyJet?

Choosing the best 3D printing technology for your in-house application

The right 3D printing technology depends on the materials, aesthetics, mechanical properties and performance you need. And unless you have a dedicated production area staffed with trained operators, you also need to consider how the technology fits into your work environment.

Clean and office-friendly

FDM and PolyJet 3D Printers are easy to operate and maintain with no messy powders to handle. An operator can be trained to load materials, replace build trays and use the simple software interface in as little as 30 minutes. Plus, materials are easy to recycle through our free recycling program.
