Our FDM 3D printing Services

At 3DC hub, we use the latest FDM technology to build strong, durable, and dimensionally stable parts using specialized 3D printers and production-grade thermoplastics with accuracy and precision.



Nylon Infused PLA

TPU 92A Elastomer



Carbon fiber-filled materials offer a wide range of properties, such as high strength, stiffness, and lightweight. It is not as abrasive resistant as other nylon filaments, but it provides more durable performance and better adhesion to the print bed. The carbon fiber offers higher tensile strength than standard nylon 12 filaments, with a hardness rating of approx. 80A for the fiber.

Material Characteristics - The material is impact-resistant, chemical-resistant, lightweight strength, and dimensionally stable. This material is available in black in color and is compatible with the Fortus 450 system only. It is called toughest FDM material and is Carbon-fiber reinforced. Applications of Carbon fiber nylon 12 CF:
  • To create customized tools and equipment for greater productivity and capability
  • To create in-house and on-demand jigs & fixtures for lower lead time & production cost
  • To design and iterate rapid prototypes using 3D printing faster than ever.
  • To build strong and durable end-use parts of any design
  • To make lightweight and efficient parts

Polylactic acid (PLA) 3D printing material

PLA filaments are reinforced with plastic and, therefore, more flexible than ABS or ABS-like materials. PLA also features lower heat resistance, and may polymerize in the nozzle of the printer, which can result in catastrophic failure of the print head.

In comparison to other 3D printing materials, PLA has low stiffness—considered uncompetitive with other additive processes—and thus high power consumption. Nevertheless, its flexibility enables multiple lengths to be added to parts printed directly on their base without support structures.

Material Characteristics
  • Excellent toughness and impact resistance
  • Excellent stiffness and stiffness retention
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Low cost (cost per gram of material)
  • Easy to print on most filaments and print materials with no fear of warping.
Applications of Polylactic acid (PLA)
  • Replacement parts for high-performance applications
  • Scaffold, models, prototypes, and other models.
  • Large-Scale Production with high assembly rate.
  • A wide variety of objects as replacement parts for many different mechanical, electronic, medical, building automation, and other engineering applications
  • Use of low-cost labor for prototyping and production parts.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) 3D printing material

ABS is a thermoplastic polymer with a crystalline structure. Its main rivals are polypropylene and polycarbonate. ABS produces no fumes and is not flammable, making it a good choice for safety and cleanliness in an area where volatile substances may be present. It is a very versatile material, able to be printed in high resolution and intricate shapes with fine details. Along with PLA plastic, it is one of the most common materials used in 3D printing. With a multitude of colors and finishes, it offers a broad spectrum of options for creating prints that touch the ceiling in possibilities.

Material Properties:
  • Very high impact resistance
  • Very high stiffness, bending strength, and tensile strength
  • Excellent dimensional stability.
  • Good adhesion onto glass and other materials.
  • Low shrinkage (about 1%) when printing on a heated bed.
  • High temperature resistance (to 120degC for general purpose ABS).
  • Replacement parts for prototyping and production
  • Scaffolds, models, prototypes, and other models
  • Large-Scale Production with high assembly rate.
  • A wide variety of objects as replacement parts for many different mechanical, electronic, medical, building automation, and other engineering applications.
  • Printing large volumes using industry standard print materials.



How FDM 3D Printing Technology Works?

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing technology is a subcategory of fused filament fabrication or fused deposition modeling (FFM) 3D printing, a method of additive manufacturing that deposits material by melting it into shape by heating. The resulting objects are typically printed in the same material as the model.
  • 1. Pre-processing - CAD Modelling Design of the 3D model in CAD software, and preparation of printing files (STL files) are performed before the object is printed. FDM technology relies on slicing software to generate layers and generate toolpaths for movement and extrusion.
  • 2. Production - Extrusion of Filament After the 3D model is sent to the printer in STL format, an extruder (or nozzle) prepares the material for printing. The material is extruded through a thin tube called a nozzle in many materials and layer-by-layer saved on the print bed. In FDM printing, support structures are generated and/or placed by software to maintain overhangs or complex geometries during printing.
  • 3. Post-processing - Finishing and Cleaning After printing, the model is removed from the print bed, and excess material is chopped off. Cured or solidified material may be sanded or filed for a smoother finish.
