Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

What is Fused Deposition Modeling?

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) machine extrudes melted plastic filament through the extrusion head to create parts on the build plate. The melted material comes out in thin strands and deposits layer by layer along a path determined by design. Once deposited, the material cools and solidifies. The extrusion head is attached to a three-axis system that allows it to move across the X, Y and Z axes.

FDM is the most popular option for various reasons. It is mostly used for prototyping.


These limitations can be minimize if the design is well made. We can guide you to optimize your 3D design before printing to avoid misfortune for your prints.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our service can cost between $2 per unit up to thousands of dollars. It depends on multiple factors such as the complexity of the model, volume, and the material used.

We usually can convert all formats. However, we prefer OBJ, STL, STP, STEP, and 3DM file.

Yes, you have to send us the file with colour texture. Otherwise, it will be printed in solid colour and get painted.

Please email us at [email protected] with your material requirement. We can check with our certified suppliers.

We can print in 1-5 days.  But it depends on the size of the object. The larger it is, the longer it takes to print. The volume prints also matter. Cleaning and polishing also adds production time. Every print is cleaned and polished so you only get the best result every single time.

The best way to have an estimation is to email us the files/pictures to review at [email protected]

Yes, we can ship anywhere around the globe.
