This post is simply to show how neat the FDM process is. FDM stands for Fused Deposition Modeling and is a neat tool for prototyping plastic parts. I was able to see the results of FDM after a customer had one of my models done with the process, he was nice enough to let me take some pics of it 🙂 . Frankly I think this kind of prototyping opens up a wide variety of interesting possibilities in terms of being able to develop plastic enclosures and various other mechanical projects.
Here are some images:
This is a very interesting process, hopefully I can make use of it in the future.
