FDM—Material Selection

Materials characterize manufacturing processes and manufacturing processes influence the material properties of the final product—additive manufacturing is no different. The technologies are identified by the materials they use, and the quality of the output is controlled by the processing methods. In the case of fused deposition modeling (FDM), there is a wide range of industrial-grade thermoplastics…
