Part 1. Brief Introduction of FDM 3D Printing and FDM 3D Printer

FDM 3D Printing is the additive manufacturing process to fuse and melt FDM filament such as ABS, PLA, paraffin, nylon, casting wax, and even metal with low melting point, and the melted FDM filament will be deposited from the hot nozzle. By moving down the print bed in a designated thickness, the filament will be added layer by layer. Therefore, a solid object is formed. After knowing FDM 3D theory, you can get a better understanding of how does FDM printer work exactly. If you own an FDM printer, firstly, you can choose the FDM filament material. The second step is to push the filament into the hot extruder in order to heat the material. After the material is melted completely, it will be deposited on the print bed layer by layer through the hot nozzle. Finally, you will get a real model in the printer. If you don’t get one FDM printer yet and still consider which one to buy, keep on reading and find out best FDM 3D printer we recommend to you!
