A guide to incorporating FDM tooling onto the factory floor.
FDM (fused deposition modeling) has proven to be an excellent candidate for the fabrication of jigs, fixtures, and ancillary tools commonly used in manufacturing. Unlike traditional methods, the design and fabrication of FDM tools requires a different approach in order to achieve maximum value.
This presentation will walk through the process of adopting FDM tools onto the factory floor. Topics covered will include: materials, best practices for design, and examples of success in the manufacturing industry.
