FDM is a fast, cheap and fairly efficient way of making 3D printed parts. In FDM, plastic filament is squeezed through hotend, melting it and then deposited in pre-defined path layers by layer to create a form. We have a large facility for FDM 3D printing service in Pune, ready for prototyping or batch production. With 6+ material support and multiple post-processing options, receive your functional 3D printed parts within days.

FDM Post Processing Options
Removal of the support structure is the most basic form of post-processing. Support removal is an easy process unless there are supports in hard-to-reach places. There are two types of supports, soluble or insoluble. Soluble supports are easy to remove and provide a better finish on the supported member.
We provide both soluble and insoluble support options to our customers and support removal as a standard post-processing service.
Sanding is the most common method of post-processing. FDM 3D prints can have a slightly rough surface, and sanding is the easiest way to smooth it. For large prints, we provide sanding as an additional post-processing service. The part tolerance can vary up to 500 microns, thus it is suggested to avoid sanding of tolerance sensitive 3D printed parts.
Priming and painting post-processing methods are for enhancing the look, adding colour, as well as the finish of a part. Priming and painting are not recommended for tolerance sensitive 3D printed parts. We have a team of skilled creators for professional priming and painting services. Just upload the 3D model and list the colour of your choice to receive an instant quotation.
Cold welding is a standard 3D printing service for large ABS 3D prints or 3D printing complex parts with a minimal support structure.
Smoothing is a popular post-processing technique for ABS prints. Acetone is used to melt the upper layer of ABS print and therefore smooth away the layer lines visible on a part’s surface. This makes 3D printed parts look smooth and shiny but dimensional accuracy is compromised. We provide vapour smoothing as an additional post-processing service.
Epoxy coating of 3D printed model is carried for improving strength and adding a durable protective layer. But this post-processing method seals all porous parts of the print. This is not a finishing technique so the layer line still may be visible. We provide epoxy coating as an optional post-processing service for FDM 3D printing in Pune facility.
FDM Design Guidelines
General FDM Tolerances
FDM tolerances for 0.1mm slice thickness are given below, these are subjected to change with change in print parameters.
Applications of FDM
Benefits of FDM
With calculated compensation for shrinkage and post-processing method FDM printed parts are accurate and within process tolerance. Complex geometries and cavities that would otherwise be problematic become practical with FDM technology.
FDM technology supports production-grade thermoplastics that are mechanically and environmentally stable. For these thermoplastics range of post-processing methods are available. At DigiPro 3D, we suggest the correct combination to deliver a market-ready product.
The FDM process uses engineering-grade thermoplastic filament that is easily available and affordable. FDM machines have a modest size means parts don’t have to be manufactured in a large facility, helping to lower the expense of producing small components. DigiPro 3D provides cost-effective services for FDM in Pune facility.
