Plastic Filament Material Extrusion Service

Plastic Filament Material Extrusion Service

The plastic filament material extrusion service is the process of extruding material in a 3D printing process or additive printing as it is more accurately known. In this process, plastic filament is used to construct the part, though other materials can also be used. Regardless of material, it is passed through a hole in a matrix or die, heated, and deposited on a platform, layer by layer—the source of the word additive to describe the process.
