FDM 3D Printing
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) creates 3D prints by extruding layers of filament. This method is generally lower cost with faster turn around times than other additive manufacturing methods. It is therefore ideal for large production jobs with tight deadlines.
Tangible Creative has over 100 FDM 3D printers in our Newark, New Jersey Warehouse. By utilizing our full wall of printers we can produce thousands of 3D Printed parts.
Additionally, plant based materials such as PLA can be used. As a result it is the most sustainable additive manufacturing practice. Please see our environmental statement for more information.
Although Fused Deposition Modeling is ideal for prototypes and large production runs it can also be used to create beautiful pieces with the right filament and settings. Please see below for a few examples.
