Applications of FDM 3Dprinting

Applications of FDM 3Dprinting are endless. Before that let’s describe FDM 3D printing in a line or two. In Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM), a polymer filament is fed to an extruder which pushes this filament down a nozzle. Here the filament gets melted, deposited layers over layers according to a pre-fed g-code file. Finally when all layers get printed we get the desired object.

Talking about the applications of FDM 3Dprinting, those days are long gone when one used to just prototype parts. Now with the bombardment of 3D printing market with the new printers and technology changing very fast and going really cheap, people are making end use products directly from FDM printers.

Best examples are 3D printed parts being used for making 3D printers to make printer farms. Biggest example of this can be Prusa printers. Well congratulations to Team Prusa for setting up a world record of running 1096 printers in a single facility at the same time. Talking of functional printing right off an FDM 3D printer, one needs two know two main things. First the dimensional tolerances acceptable for a part and the material in which the print must be taken. If we have have proper understanding  of these two things we can easily make functional and direct end use parts from a 3D printer.

Application of FDM3Dprinting are literally endless. Be it medical, architectural, educational, product development, aerospace, aviation, automobile, fashion, food and what not, this technology has not left a single industry untouched.
