Industrial FDM 3D
Being our most automated technology, our industrial FDM 3d printing service is the most versatile manufacturing service that we offer. With a wide range of materials, from PLA to engineering nylons, flame-retardant filaments and PVDF plastics, we have the technology and materials to suit any additive manufacturing project.
Thanks to low costs and short lead-times, FDM printing services are suitable to be used both for one-offs and prototypes as well as for larger production volumes.
FDM is the most commonly available and versatile technology for 3d printing. It is a technology for additive manufacturing that works by extruding a plastic filament through a small, moving, nozzle in order to build 3d prints layer by layer. Traditionally, items printed with FDM technology has been known to have inferior surface quality compared to other additive manufacturing methods, however, with new and more precise production equipment, this is a thing of the past.

Industrial FDM Use Cases
With lead-times of just 1–2 days and surface-quality similar to injection molded parts, SLA is an ideal technology for producing visual prototypes and end-use products.
Exceptional surface quality
Large material portfolio
Quickly produce items for design verification of your products and verify their properties in rigid or flexible materials.
Rigid and flexible materials
No tooling required, short lead-times and a wide range of materials and colours available. FDM is a perfect choice for short and medium production runs.
No tooling costs
RAL colours available
Our FDM Machinery
All of our FDM production is managed by a custom-designed, fully automated production system, producing part-quality far exceeding that of machines made by market-leaders such as Stratasys and Ultimaker. With more than 50 printers available for 24/7 production, we use industrial technology to produce large production runs of end-use products within just a few days, or prototypes and one-offs within a few hours.
We carry a very wide range of FDM materials, from simple PLA to potent PVDF via carbon-fiber infused nylons and polycarbonates. While not all materials are available via our 3d printing service’s instant quoting system at the moment, feel free to reach out to us if you are looking for a material that isn’t available on our website yet.
