FDM is the most widely available form of 3D Printing. FDM is great for producing models and mock-ups for your designs. Verify your CAD models quickly and easily with wide range of materials.

We employ the industrial Grade FDM printers to give you exceptional results, in time, every time.

FDM machines deposit a thermoplastic filament through a heated nozzle onto a build plate one layer at a time until the full model is completed and ready for clean-up and support removal.
