Fused Deposition Modeling

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

Rapid Prototyping Solutions Canada can build your model parts in a fraction of the time and cost associated with traditional manufacturing processes.

FDM technology common uses:

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

Lead time: Normally 1-3 business days depending on the capacity of the printers when we receive payment. 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.
