Fused Deposition Modeling presents a unique solution for rapid prototyping and various other design and engineering applications. With strong and durable thermoplastic parts, you can produce true-to-life representations of end-use parts.
These direct digital manufacturing systems create these 3D models with high-performance engineering materials like ABS (Acrylonitrile/butadiene/styrene) , PC (polycarbonate) and PPSF (polyphenylsulfone).
The general terms for creating a prototype using the fused depositioned model method is as follows:
Lead time: Normally 1-3 business days depending on build capacity. Local customers are welcomed to
pick up models from our facility
FDM Layer thickness: Horizontal build layers can be built in three options fine (.007"),
standard (.010"), and rough draft (.013")
Minimum Wall Thickness: .020"
Dimensional Tolerances: ABS models maintain tolerances of +/- .005" for the first inch,
and +/- 0.002" for each additional inch. In the z height (vertical), standard tolerances of
+/- 0.010" for the first inch, +/- 0.002” on every inch thereafter.
Build size: for a single piece is 10" x 10" x 12". Models that are larger than the build envelope
can be divided, printed as separate pieces, & assembled.
