FDM utilizes the same thermoplastics that you know and currently build with. It’s used for low-cost prototyping, design checks and everyday applications.
FDM technology precisely extrudes material from a nozzle layer-by-layer to form a part. It’s widely known for it’s print speed, visual impact and competitive cost.
Low cost, fast parts, with high detail, good surface quality and a wide range of materials.
Support marks may be visible, layer lines likely to be visible, limited dimensional accuracy and some materials not dimensionally stable.
ABS, HIPS, PLA, PET-G or ULTRAT
Soluable or Breakaway Supports

Below is a list of materials we offer for Fused Deposition Modeling.
ABS is ideal for creative applications, conceptual models, small plastic parts or gadgets and rapid prototypes with moderate functional requirements.
PLA comes from natural resources, making it biodegradable and environmentally friendly. It’s a very hard material with a low shrink rate.
ULTRAT is an all-purpose and all-around great material with exceptional durability. Great for end-use parts that are required to keep their initial shape over time.
Hard and impact resistant thermoplastic, with a smooth matte surface. Use HIPS to print durable parts without compromising on the quality.
Industrial material that can defend time, resist most chemicals and weather the elements. Known for exceptional durability and strength.
We’re constantly testing and adding new additive materials. Here are a few FDM materials that we’re planning to release: ASA, ESD, PC-ABS and PHA
