How does FFF technology work?
- The process starts with a CAD model transformed into a printable format
- Material is distributed by a moving print head that extrudes a heated thermoplastic in a pattern, path-by-path, onto a build platform
- The build plate descends slightly and the process is repeated layer by layer until the build is complete
Technology includes the use of a second material to create support structures that can be dissolved or physically removed after the build has been completed.

How look like of FFF process printing?
FFF 3D Printing: FFF stands for Fused Filament Fabrication, which is a common 3D printing process. In FFF 3D printing, a thermoplastic filament is heated and extruded layer by layer to create a three-dimensional object. The printer nozzle moves in the X, Y, and Z axes to build up the object from the bottom up. The layers adhere to each other as they cool, creating a solid printed structure.
Why FDM is so popular?
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a popular 3D printing technology for several reasons: is cost-effectiveness, FDM supports a wide range of thermoplastic materials, including PLA, ABS, PETG, and more, FDM printers are relatively easy to set up and operate.
What is the difference between SLA and FFF?
SLA and FFF are two different 3D printing technologies, each with its own set of characteristics and processes. Uses a process called stereolithography, where a liquid resin is cured layer by layer using a UV light source. The object is built upside down on a build platform submerged in the liquid resin. Also known as FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) or Fused Filament Fabrication, it involves extruding thermoplastic filament through a heated nozzle onto a build platform layer by layer.
