Fused Deposition Modeling

Also known as: FDM, Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), Fused Layer Modeling or Fused Layer Manufacturing (FLM)

Commonly used in 3D Printing, Fused Deposition Modeling is an additive fabrication technique with a high level of accuracy. It first consists of heating a filament of plastic. Once it has melted, the filament is extruded through a nozzle and is deposited on a building platform. The plastic material hardens as the component is constructed layer-by-layer.
