Material Extrusion Service
Capable of quickly delivering parts made with true engineering plastics, 3Diligent ProdEX's material extrusion service reliably delivers high-quality models, tools, fixtures, and production parts. In addition to durable parts, this additive-manufacturing process is also capable of delivering large FDM prints, with expertise delivering parts much larger than the typical cubic yard build envelope.
Material Extrusion Service Overview
Material extrusion 3D Printing involves extrusion of material from a precisely controlled print head to form each layer of the model. After a layer is completed, the print head will rise or the build tray will descend one layer thickness so the print head can extrude the next layer, which creates visible stepping. Considering there is no supporting powder or surrounding media, extrusion prints will always require support structures for stalactites and overhangs with a large minimum overhang. Despite the support structures, extrusion processes are typically fast and affordable.
