Rapid Prototyping Technology - Study Of Fused Deposition Modeling Technique
Rapid Prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of physical part or assembly
using 3D CADvia 3D printers or additive manufacturing technique. Additive Manufacturing has ability to create any shape
and geometry. Rapid Prototyping can be classified into solid, liquid, paste and gases. Fused Deposition Modeling is an
additive manufacturing technology. FDM is more quicker and cost effective method. Basic material used in Fused
Deposition Modeling is ABS- Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. For higher mechanical properties of FDM, advanced
materials are also used. This paper focus on Fused Deposition Modeling Technique.
