Materials for Fused Deposition Modeling 

Fused Deposition Modeling is an additive manufacturing process which is used to build concept models, functional prototypes and end-use parts with engineering-grade and high accuracy thermoplastics. The FDM technology is designed to create with production-grade thermoplastic materials that possess the most mechanical, thermal and chemical strength.

Why use Fused Deposition Modeling? 

FDM 3D Printing is designed to build durable thermoplastics used in an injection molding process. FDM 3D printing does not only allow you to manufacture tools, parts, prototypes, but colour printing is also available on the lineup of Fortus 3D printers. Fortus machines are designed to be user friendly and to fit perfectly in manufacturing facilities. Fortus also provides a Finishing Touch Smoothing Station to be purchased with your Fortus 3D printer to save you time and eliminate unnecessary expenses on finishing procedures. 



ABS-M30 is a production-grade thermoplastic, which allows you to print in 6 different colours. Using Fused Deposition Modeling technology, its the lowest cost material within the thermoplastic family. ABS-M30 has strong mechanical properties since the layer bonding is significantly stronger than in standard ABS materials.

3D Print in 9 different base colours when using the ABSplus material. It is an affordable thermoplastic material which offers great flexibility to engineers and designers. 3D print the parts in different colours prior to assembly to give your prototypes finishing touches during the 3D printing process. The prototype will perform just as durable as the finished product.

Polycarbonate (PC) 

Introducing a strong engineering plastic that is build to endure heavy duty work. The Polycarbonate (PC) material enables engineers and designers to create durable parts in-house for manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, commercial and other industries. PC is an accurate and stable material offered in white colour that withstands functional testing. It has superior mechanical properties to a few other thermoplastics.

Polycarbonate-ABS (PC-ABS)  

PC-ABS is one of the most widely used industrial thermoplastics. The combination of Polycarbonates and  ABS allow the Fortus FDM machines to 3D print manufacturing tools and parts with a superior heat resistance, a higher strength capacity and the flexibility of the ABS material.
