Fused Deposit Modeling (FDM) and PolyJet 3D Printing: Now and in the Future

If you’re looking to purchase your first 3D printer, upgrade your existing machine, or simply learn more about the printing industry right now, you’ve come to the right post. While Stereo Lithography, Laser Sintering, and Powder Printing techniques are going strong, Fused Deposit Modeling (FDM) and PolyJet are the current leaders of the 3D printing pack. However, though both FDM and PolyJet each assemble 3D models layer by layer, the materials, processes, and benefits differ greatly.

Let’s break it down.
