1. Introduction to 3D printing technology

3D printing technology, also known as three-dimensional printing technology, is a way to directly transform computer models into physical entities. It uses a layer-by-layer approach to gradually build objects up by adding materials. Currently, one of the most common 3D printing technologies on the market is FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) technology.

2. Principles and processes of FDM technology

FDM technology extrudes molten plastic material from a printing nozzle and controls the movement of the print head to stack the material layer by layer to ultimately form the desired 3D model. In FDM technology, both the printing nozzle and the printing bed can move, allowing the model to move on three coordinate axes to achieve precise positioning.

3. Advantages of FDM technology

FDM technology has many advantages. It has a high manufacturing speed and is suitable for mass production; because the material is directly melted, no additional adhesive is required during the manufacturing process, which can reduce material waste. FDM technology can also use a variety of materials, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, etc., suitable for different application fields.

4. Application fields of FDM technology

FDM technology has wide applications in various fields. In the industrial field, it is widely used to manufacture prototypes, molds, and customized parts; in the medical field, it can be used to manufacture personalized medical devices and prostheses; and in the architectural field, it can be used to print architectural models and small buildings.

5. Future development of FDM technology

With the continuous development of technology, FDM technology still has great potential in the future. On the one hand, with the continuous improvement of materials and machines, FDM technology will be able to create more complex and more precise objects; on the other hand, with the reduction of costs, FDM technology will gradually enter the home and provide more opportunities for personal customization. How possible.


FDM technology is a powerful 3D printing technology with simple principles and wide applications. It not only plays an important role in the industrial field but also plays an important role in medical, construction, and other fields. With the advancement and development of technology, FDM technology will have broader application prospects in the future, bringing more innovations and opportunities to all walks of life.
