FDM — FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is an extrusion style process that involves heating the build material and forcing it through a nozzle. The speed and force used to extrude the material determines layer size and detail. A build support is needed. The advantage of our FDM technology is the dual extrusion nozzle which gives us the ability to use a water soluble support material.
