Technologies

Explore 3D printing technologies, identify the benefits to your organization, and discover the multitude of ways it is changing the manufacturing landscape.

There are two main technologies for 3D printing: FDM systems and PolyJet systems. FDM and its related technologies are by far the most accessible and widely used form of 3D printing, with variations found at the consumer level, the industrial level, and everything in between. 3D printers based on FDM technology build parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic filament.

By contrast, PolyJet technology is renowned for its outstanding realism and breathtaking aesthetics. The technology works similarly to traditional inkjet printing, but instead of jetting ink onto paper, a print head jets liquid photopolymer onto a build tray where each droplet cures in a flash of UV light.
