The 6 Main Advantages of FDM 3D PrintingIf you are considering FDM 3D printing then you are considering one of the top options on the market. We have clients know that it is the best but are not certain why. They know it is the choice for them because they’ve done their research, but they couldn’t point to the specific reasons that it’s the right choice.

If you have a project that requires incredible precision then you simply cannot find a better option than this. We are talking about tolerances of just +/- 0.004” or +/- 0.002” per inch. This is truly the precision option you have been looking for.

  3. FDM 3D Printing Offers the Strength You Need
  4. The final FDM printed parts are available in a wide range of high-performance plastics. No matter how much strength you need, no matter how much resistance to the elements is required for your project, you can count on this process to have what you need.
