Example of 3D printed figures and prototypes by FDM in ABS and PLA materials
3D printers based on FDM technology manufacture parts heating the thermoplastic material to a semi-liquid state and extruding it layer by layer.
The filaments of material are sent from a reel towards the printing head, which move along X and Y coordinates and depose the melted material to achieve each layer.
The base moves downwards along the Z axis and the next layer begins.
When the 3D printer ends, the user can detach the final product. The part is then ready for use.
