Robust Capabilities with FDM
What Is FDM?
It utilizes strong, engineering-grade materials like ABS, Polycarbonate and ULTEM™ 9085.
FDM from the Pioneers of 3D Printing
FDM's Big Impact with Small Production Runs
FDM helps companies say yes to more opportunities in low-volume, customized production parts.

FDM: Familiar Thermoplastics, Fast
What Is FDM Best Used For?
Use the same strong, stable plastics you’re familiar with to build geometries only attainable with 3D printing.
Engineer-Grade Thermoplastics with FDM
A wide-range of industry specific thermoplastics will help you achieve specific characteristics.
Projects in the industrial, heavy machinery and transportation industries utilize PC-ABS for its superior strength, and aerospace engineers favor ULTEM™ 9085 and 1010 for their FST ratings and FAA 25.853 compliance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are FDM parts as strong as components built using traditional manufacturing methods?
The orientation of a printed part on the build platform has an effect on its strength. Parts are stronger along the X- and Y-axis of the build than the Z-axis.
What level of detail can be obtained with FDM?
FDM is available in several resolutions. At its highest resolution, the layer thickness is 0.005” and the X/Y resolution is 0.024”.
Can inserts be staked or added during an FDM build?
Washers, nuts, bolts, threaded rods, or other objects can be inserted mid-build by technicians without secondary operations.

TS Tech saw significant weight savings by replacing an aluminum fixture with an FDM/aluminum hybrid fixture.
“Stratasys Direct Manufacturing can produce a hybrid check fixture of roughly half metal and half ABS-M30™ thermoplastic in just two weeks, while the aluminum fixture takes six weeks or more to manufacture,” Stephen Mollett, TS Tech
