FDM builds functional parts and tools


Darin Everett from Stratasys Inc. explains how additive fabrication is being used in rapid prototyping and direct digital manufacturing (DDM).  He says DDM makes end-use parts such as instrument housings for motorcycles, as well as fabrication and assembly tools like jigs and fixtures. Everett also shows available materials and colors. He says ABS is the most widely used material on higher-end FDM machines and he discusses a new blend of ABS. Everett also discusses the tolerances the machines can hold with different size parts. Running time is about 5 min. www.stratasys.com
