Fused Deposition Modeling

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Process by Exelus

​Exelus 3D specializes in Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), an advanced additive manufacturing technique that produces high-quality, precise, and durable parts. As a leading provider of 3D printing solutions, we leverage FDM technology to bring innovative designs to life for various industries and applications.

What is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)?

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is an additive manufacturing process that builds parts layer by layer using thermoplastic filaments. The process begins with a digital 3D model, which is sliced into thin layers. The FDM printer then heats the thermoplastic filament to its melting point and extrudes it through a nozzle, depositing the material layer by layer according to the sliced design. Each layer fuses with the previous one as it cools, gradually forming a solid, three-dimensional object.

Key Features and Benefits of FDM Technology
1. Material Versatility: FDM technology supports a wide range of thermoplastic materials, including ABS, PLA, PETG, and more, allowing for versatility in material selection to meet specific application requirements.
2. High Precision and Accuracy: With precise control over the deposition of material, FDM technology delivers high levels of accuracy and dimensional consistency, ensuring that parts meet tight tolerances and specifications.
3. Durable and Functional Parts: FDM-printed parts are known for their durability and strength, making them suitable for functional prototypes, end-use parts, and production tooling across various industries.
4. Cost-Effective Production: FDM technology offers cost-effective manufacturing solutions, with reduced material waste and shorter lead times compared to traditional manufacturing methods.
5. Complex Geometries: FDM technology can produce parts with intricate geometries and internal structures that are difficult or impossible to achieve using conventional manufacturing processes.
