Fused filament fabrication

Description

Fused filament fabrication is a generative process known as additive manufacturing and uses layers of material to create three-dimensional workpieces. 3D-printing produces layers to build a workpiece with predetermined dimensions and shapes using physical or chemical methods to soften or harden the material consisting of one or more liquid or solid raw materials. Typical materials for 3D-printing are plastic, synthetic resin, ceramics and metals.

Compared to other manufacturing processes, 3D-printing shows considerable advantages compared to competing machining processes such as injection moulding for example, as 3D-printing does not require any injection moulds. Also compared to all abrasive processes like cutting, turning or milling, 3D-printing has the advantage that there is no additional processing step after forming. Another unparalleled advantage of 3D-printing is the possibility to create complex shapes, which can only be produced with existing machines with difficulty or not at all.
