Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Principle and Process The FDM technique relies on melting and selectively depositing a thin filament of thermoplastic polymer (ABS - engineering and medical grade - plastic, Polycarbonate and investment casting wax) in a cross-hatching fashion to form each layer of the part. The Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM Printing) process forms three-dimensional objects on an FDM machine from CAD-generated solid or surface models. A temperature-controlled head extrudes thermoplastic material layer by layer. The rapid prototype emerges from the FDM 3D printer as a solid three-dimensional part without the need for tooling.
