Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Prototyping Services 

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.

The Technology

FDM is a manufacturing process that uses additive fabrication technology to build thermoplastic prototypes or production parts by laying down material in layers

FDM technology common uses:

  • Ramping up production, while waiting for tooling
  • Low-volume production
  • Replacement part manufacturing
  • Limited/special edition products
  • Unique products
  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Design verification
  • Functional testing
  • Product end-use
  • Marketing tools

​The materials are exceptionally durable, with heat resistance, and structural integrity easily accommodated


Improve Your Product 
Development Cycle 

FDM rapid prototyping services can greatly reduce your product development cycle, and time to market.

The ability to spot mechanical or geometrical errors in a product or objet prior to production can save countless dollars in after-the-sale support. Prototyping technologies can assist in spotting design iterations, and testing the actual product.

By employing Proto3000 as your FDM rapid prototyping services partner, your company is able to distribute valuable human resources to perform other tasks involved in the product development process. 


Collaboration Is Key

Proto3000 offers Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) services for those rapid prototyping projects that require durable grade properties

We use top of the line FDM rapid prototyping machines to produce the highest grade prototypes that meet your project requirements, including color and material properties 

Fused Deposition Modeling is a rapid prototyping process that offers versatility and selection. Our surfaces can include anything from basic FDM 3D prototypes, to different colours, to custom finishes

Proto3000 can build your model parts in a fraction of the time and cost associated with traditional manufacturing processes. We aim to create a long-lasting partnership that will benefit both parties long-term.

 FDM services at Proto3000 have never been easier. We boast quick turnaround times, and our service staff will guide you through the material selection process. Call now, or request a quote online today.
