Advanced FDM takes Stratasys FDM 3D Printing into the next era of model-based model customization and printing speed.

Model-Based job control

Advanced fdm model based job control
Reference native CAD data
Select native CAD surfaces and features like holes and bodies in multi-body parts to customize your model for optimal print results.
Advanced controls
Optimize your model to your design requirements; thicken some surfaces, make bodies more rigid and other bodies less, select different infill patterns and densities for different bodies in your model.
Customize holes
Resize and reinforce hole geometry based on the insert you selected. Or, select a hole and change it to be self-supporting, drilled out by a later manufacturing operation.
Update when you want
It’s easy to update your process when you need to; click on the surface or body, make the changes, and print your updated toolpath.

Create manufacturing documentation

Manufacturing notes
Create a custom traveler
Capture your printing and post-processing instructions with your model; select a surface or body, add your instruction, and export it as a PDF to accompany your model as it is printed and post-processed.
