Fused Deposition Modeling Chicago

Fused Deposition Modeling Chicago

For over 25 years Met-L-Flo, Inc. has been utilizing Additive Manufacturing processes such as Fused Deposition Modeling and Direct Digital Manufacturing for low volume production, to design and develop prototypes.

Fused Deposition Modeling or FDM is a type of Additive Manufacturing that heats and extrudes a thin filament of thermoplastic to form parts layer by layer. Heating is necessary to fuse the layers together. These layers help strengthen the structural integrity of your prototype. FDM is ideal for printing complex 3D parts that are required to perform at a high level and this is ideal for extreme testing. As a 3D printing technique, the process begins with the software from the created design from an STL file.

Here at Met-L-Flo, Inc., we have a vast amount of materials to ensure you get the best match for your custom FDM prototype. If you have any questions about our 3D printing services or would like more information on Fused Deposition Modeling in Chicago, call us today at 1-800-MET-L-FLO to speak with a knowledgeable representative.
