Fused Deposition Modeling

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is an additive manufacturing technology commonly used for modeling, production prototypes, and production applications.

Faster Turnaround

Vanpro can produce FDM models in hours—not days or weeks. When you need a functional prototype, outsourcing or hand-building a model yourself can take a considerable amount of time. With Vanpro’s FDM capability we can create functional prototypes in just hours, allowing for more design iterations and immediate design feedback.

Reduced Costs

Depending on its size and geometry, an outsourced prototype can be extremely expensive. Hand-building a functional or production prototype could cost thousands of dollars in labor alone. Vanpro’s FDM printing can create the same prototype for a fraction of the price.

We can offer

ABS prototype pieces that snap together or fit into an assembly, helping you catch and fix mistakes early while the cost of change is low. Our ABS fabrication prototypes provide a higher level of accuracy, stability, and durability than wax models or other 3D offerings.

Durable, Testable Parts

Build a functional model with your ABS prototype parts—the parts won’t warp, shrink or absorb moisture. They can be used as working models because they withstand rigorous testing.

Vanpro is ready to meet your 3D modeling needs. Simply supply a solid model or 3D CAD file, and we can turn your prototypes around in a timeframe that keeps your program on track!
