Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Fused Deposition Modeling or FDM for short, has been commonly interchanged with Fused Filament Fabrication or FFF. A very popular method of 3D printing, it extrudes filament material through a nozzle to create parts. It has the most range in terms of materials, printing from simple and easy materials like PLA to industrial aerospace materials like PEEK.

Our Printing Standards

Many settings can affect the visual quality and strength of the parts when using Fused Deposition Modelling. If these settings are not specified, we use our printing standards.


Standard: 15%

Nozzle Size

Standard: 0.4mm

Layer thickness

Standard: 200um

Wall Thickness

Standard: 3 Walls
(1.2mm @ 0.4 Nozzle Size)

We can be flexible with the available options, so if a certain specification is not stated on the above options, feel free to reach out with your specifications.

Our Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) Materials

We carry some of the widest range of materials in the region to meet some of the most demanding engineering requirements. Some notable materials are:


A composite of nylon and carbon fiber, used in a variety of engineering applications from tooling to fixtures.

  • Many different grades are available to suit a variety of applications
  • Can be used to replace certain metal components for lightweighting

An extremely tough engineering plastic, Polycarbonates are impact resistant giving it uses in the automotive, railway, and many more sectors.

  • EN45545 grades available
  • Wide temperature use range (-80°C to 140°C)
  • Can be sterilised.
ULTEM 9085

Commonly used in aerospace applications, ULTEM 9085 is known for its high strength and resistance to temperature.

  • Meets the railway EN45545 standard
  • Aerospace FAR 25.853 Compliant
  • UL94-V0 flame retardant

With one of the highest thermal resistance, PEEK is a high-performance thermoplastic with a wide range of applications in the most demanding of environments

  • Up to 250°C continuous use temperature
  • Extremely chemically resistant even at elevated temperatures.

Beyond Bynd Quality Standards for FDM Parts

We have high standards for parts printed on our FDM platforms. Visual inspection is done on every single part

  • Consistent surface finish with no bumps or delamination. Marks left by retraction and layer changes are acceptable.
  • All support material is removed so the supported surface has a consistent finish. The supported surface will have a different surface texture and may have minor surface defects which are acceptable.
  • The same parts will be printed on the same build surface. Build surfaces can change the surface finish therefore we have a strict adherence to the same build surface.
