Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Materials

Multi-Material and Traditional Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Using Stratasys or 3NTR Printers. FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) is a method of 3D printing where your part is printed layer by layer in extruded production-grade thermoplastic. GoProto offers a very wide array of material options and also three different types of FDM printers with different capabilities for size and material processing. We have the latest and greatest materials, machines and expert staff to help guide you through finding the best solution to satisfy your needs. Below is a list of our materials and the spec sheets for them.
