What is 3D Printing?

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is an additive process whereby layers of material are built up to create a 3D part. FDM printers use a thermoplastic filament, which is heated to its melting point and then extruded, layer by layer, to create a three-dimensional object for a computer-created design

One of the benefits of 3D printing as an additive process is that there is less waste. Instead of starting with a block of material, you begin from scratch, using only the necessary amount to make the object. This is what makes 3D printing a smart choice for producing objects and a seemingly eco-friendlier option.

Our 3D printed items are functional parts and they are not manufactured to be pieces of art. They are printed at higher temperatures of the envelope range to ensure the best layer adhesion and to maximize the strength of the part. Thus, they might not look as pretty as other 3D printed materials like PLA or PLA Plus.
