FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling): Instant gratification
A few years ago we added a Dimension FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printer to our in-house capabilities. The advantage over a SLA type printer is the FDM process uses ABS plastic as the base material giving parts that are stronger and more resistent to warping and deforming in heat. These parts are perfect to verify CAD data and can be finished as an appearance model.
We think there is a big advantage to having this printer at Compass. We have complete control over the build, we can set our own priorities based on the client's schedule and we can monitor the build remotely via the internet. Another bonus - we can keep your project confidential.
The Dimension specifications are:
- Maximum build size per part is 8.00" x 8.00" x 12.00" (200 x 200 x 300mm). We can combine parts to create larger models.
- The material is ABS engineering resin, various colors are available.
