FDM—Fused Deposition Modeling

Met-L-Flo 3D Printing Services

The Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) process heats and extrudes a thin filament of thermoplastic to form parts layer by layer. The heat helps to fuse layers together giving parts increased structural integrity. FDM is a great way to 3D Print complex parts requiring high performance material properties for extreme testing as well as direct digital manufacturing usage for low volume production.  We have a wide variety of FDM materials to assure the best match for your custom prototype and low volume manufacturing applications.
