Advantages
Material Selection. Choose from over 15 materials with a wide range of properties.
Relatively Affordable. Thermoplastic filaments are relatively inexpensive, making extrusion a cost-effective option, especially for larger prints.
Short Lead Times. Extrusion parts will typically ship in 1 – 5 business days.
Large Build Volume. Our largest printer can handle prints 10' x 12' x 20'. Those measurements are in feet!
Limitations
Low durability. To successfully be jetted from an ink head, fairly low viscosity—and thus typically less durable—materials are also required. Further, as a general rule, photopolymers weaken over time, especially when exposed to light.
Downward-facing surfaces. Support structures are required, the removal of which can impact surface finish and post-processing speed. 3Diligent offers a tremendous range of extrusion printing materials, from basic ABS to aerospace-grade thermoplastics such as Ultem 9085.
