Quickparts Offers New Fused Deposition Modeling Finish Options for Rapid Prototyping

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 05, 2009 -- Quickparts ( http://www.quickparts.com), one of North America's largest providers of custom designed parts, from rapid prototyping to production parts, today announced the availability of new finish options for use in the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Rapid Prototyping process.

"For our customers that need functional parts, FDM has always been a great process option. Unfortunately, until now, it did not have a great surface finish and that limited how our customers could use it. Now with these new finish options, we have opened the door for our customers to use the FDM process for both functional needs and show quality needs," said Patrick Hunter, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Quickparts. "These new finish options open the door for our customers to use fused deposition modeling for their low volume digital manufacturing needs."

The finishing process is a smoothing process that removes the build layers and provides a near injection molding quality finish. The smooth finish is available with either a gloss finish or a matte finish depending on the desire of the customer.

FDM materials available for the new finish options include ABS and ABS-M30 production-grade thermoplastics. With such a large variety of materials to choose from, customers are now able to use the FDM process as a tool-less solution to their low volume manufacturing needs.
