Industrial FDM 3D Printer Buying Guide
FDM 3D Printer Introduction
3D Printing has brought a lot of delight to the research and industrial field, also for recreation. This technology has made it easy and less time-consuming to develop prototypes and exact copies of objects and images. If you are familiar with the world of 3D Printing, you must have known the popularity and efficiency of FDM 3D printers.
For the benefit of the doubt, let us briefly explain the FDM technology if you are new to the world of 3D Printing. FDM 3D printers aid the manufacturing of 3-dimensional objects through a computer-aided manufacturing process. Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) uses additive manufacturing 3D printing technology, which relies on material extrusion.
FDM uses a simple set-up, which includes a building platform, heated nozzle, and coiled thermoplastic filaments for building objects layer by layer. Each layer you print is placed on top of another layer, which goes on until you finish printing your object. FDM 3D printing is fun, and there are available for domestic usage to industrial 3D Printing. You can find 3D printers from as low as 200x200x200 to 400x400x400mm 3d printer to 1000x1000x1000 3d printers used for weighty industrial purposes.
We understand that there are a lot of 3d printers out there and a lot of advertising, and it can be pretty confusing for you to make the right decision when picking the right 3d printer that you need. This guide will help break down the 3d printing language and provide all the essential information you need to know about industrial FDM 3d printing.
1.1, Principle Of FDM 3d Printer
FDM 3d printers have a unique mechanical process that makes them different from other 3d printers like SLA. FDM 3d printers are widely used because of their effortless set-up. The FDM simple components are made up of different parts like the heated nozzle, the build platform, and the coiled thermoplastic filaments. These three components are necessary; let us take a look at how each works.
Before you begin printing, you need to upload the digital design you want on your 3D printer, pick options, and create slices or layers. After this, your 3d printer creates an extrusion path which the print head or nozzle follows. Finally, the filament is let loosed and fed through your heated nozzle after the software has determined the path.
The nozzle melts the filament into a semi-liquid and lets it out onto the building board. The melted filament is placed layer by layer until you get your required result. The melted filament becomes solid immediately after leaving the printer head and bonds with the layer beneath it.
1.2, What Materials Can Be Printed By FDM 3d Printer
The material for your 3d printer depends on the object you are printing and the type of FDM machine you are using. Thermoplastics are the most common materials used for industrial 3D Printing. This is because they are malleable and can be melted by the printer head. Also, since FDM 3d printing machines use a layer-by-layer printing system, the thermoplastic filaments make it easy for each layer to stick to the layer beneath it.
These thermoplastics include Nylon, Carbon fiber, PLA, ABS, PC, PETG, PVA, HIPS, TUP, and ULTEM. Each filament material is made up of its unique characteristics, making it better for some applications than others. When choosing the material for your 3D Printing, you must consider strength, flexibility, durability, ease of use, the complexity of print, heat resistance, and complexity. Our 400x400x400mm 3d printer can print all materials because of its anodized aluminum template.
Some of these materials are stronger than others, and your filament requirement will determine which one you pick. If you are printing concept prototypes, you will go with the soft and easier materials since your prototype will not face physical pressure. If you want to print an object for functional testing, on the other hand, you will need a tougher and hard-to-print filament material. Let us briefly look at the different properties, cons, and pros of the printing materials mentioned above.
Nylon: Nylon is also known as Polyamide, and it is a commonly used material in the 3d industry. It is commonly used because of its flexibility, durability, abrasion resistance, chemical stability, low coefficient of friction, and it takes up coloring agents very quickly.
Nylon is the best option when you are printing any object that will experience a lot of mechanical wear and tear. This material is best used for creating tools, functional prototypes, and mechanical parts such as hinges, buckles, and gears. Since your FDM machine carries out layer to layer printing, Nylon’s layer to layer adhesion is impressive and excellent. Although nylon filament requires an extrusion temperature of 250-degree Celsius, some FDM printers allow for lower printing temperatures at 220 degrees Celsius.
Although Nylon comes with many advantages, it also has its perks which you need to be mindful of. Nylon filaments absorb moisture quickly, and this is a blessing because it is easy when applying other coloring agents and dyes. But this hygroscopic nature is also a disadvantage. Absorbing moisture can lead to quality print issues. You will need to store your nylon filaments in airtight packaging to guard against this. The closed-door chassis of our 400x400x400mm 3d printer helps against absorbing moisture while printing.
You need high temperatures when printing with Nylon; this leads to high stringing and warping, affecting your object’s outcome. Also, you will end up using a lot of power to heat your print bed and nozzle. Using nylon filament is very tricky, and it will require you to use many tricks to surmount these difficulties, but the end product is satisfying.
PLA: Polylactic Acid (PLA) is the most widely used material for FDM 3D printing because it is easy to use and cheap. Some of its characteristics include low-temperature Printing, less prone to warping, flexibility, does not emit fumes, heat stability, and sub-par durability. In addition, it is ideal for a lot of applications because it also comes in different shades and styles.
It is easy to use and very ideal for beginners. PLA is a toxic-free material because it is made from lactic acid monomers. It can also be made from renewable sources like potato starch, sugar cane, and corn starch. In addition, it requires low heat printing temperatures, which means that you will not encounter warping and stringing.
PLA filaments absorb moisture quickly, which means that you have to store it in an airtight container. If you use a PLA filament that is not well dried, it will affect the quality of your final print. This material is best used for printing prototypes and display items.
HIPS: High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is made from polybutadiene and polystyrene, which gives this filament material its strength and flexibility. This filament can absorb more impact without breaking, and it is not expensive. Some of its qualities are heat stability, good impact strength, flexibility, prints at high temperatures, and prone to warping.
This filament is best used for Printing moving parts with high-impact applications and support structures. It is easy to absorb dyes and colors, and it works with several adhesives. However, HIPS filament is not commonly used in 3D Printing as the primary material.
Instead, it is used as a supporting material, especially when working with ABS. It is used as a supporting material because of how easy it is to dissolve it in limonene, a cheap and easily obtainable solvent. In addition, it is best used for ABS because HIPS prints at nearly the same temperature as ABS. This means that you can print both filaments simultaneously using a multi-extruding printer without changing the temperature setting in the middle of the printing.
HIPS is prone to warping and stringing, it is very soft when hot, and it emits toxic fumes, which means you need to use it in a well-ventilated environment. Another good thing about it is that it has been declared food-safe by the FDA, making it a good material for printing food-related objects.
Carbon Fiber: this is a thin filament material made from bonded carbon in a crystalline formation. This filament material is solid, abrasion-resistant, durable, lightweight, and exceptional rigidity. It most times enhances the strength of polymers used in sporting goods, automotive, and aerospace industries.
It is best suited for scenarios where weight is an essential factor. This filament is resistant to chemical degradation and corrosion, and its volume is not affected when exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures.
One of the difficulties with using this filament is that the carbon fiber particles do not melt during the nozzle’s extrusion. This can make your nozzle clog frequently. Also, these carbon fiber particles work as abrasives that can wear down your nozzle. Therefore, it is advisable to use hardened steel for your nozzle when working with this material. The 400x400x400mm 3d printer on our catalog is a perfect 3d printer for this material because of the high heat temperature of the nozzle.
ABS: Acetonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a polymer made from three monomers; butadiene, acrylonitrile, and styrene. These three monomers give it the qualities of durability, chemical stability, high-temperature printing, rigidity, soluble in acetone, and it emits fumes during Printing. You can use this material for outdoor items and functional parts like brackets and hinges.
It requires a high temperature for Printing of about 220 – 250 degrees Celsius, and our 400x400x400mm 3d printer is compatible with this filament. Although it gives its objects high durability and strength, it makes printing complicated. Its rapid cooling creates a high tendency for the object to warp. This means that you need to use a heated printing bed to control the temperature of your building platform.
You need a well-ventilated area when using this material because of the toxic fumes that it produces. Also, because of the complexity of using this material, many things might go wrong when printing, especially if you are new to the 3D printing world. You will need to understand the fundamental of 3D Printing for you to perfect the art of Printing with ABS.
PC: Polycarbonate or PC, as commonly called, is the strongest material used for 3D Printing. It has superior strength, good optical properties, high impact resistance, heat-stable, and high tensile strength. It is best used for safety equipment, electronic display screens, and construction equipment.
This filament transmits visible light in a far more superior way than other filaments. This material also exhibits some amount of flexibility that is not found in PLA and ABS filaments. You can use this for creating some other objects like bulletproof glass and riot gear. This filament is tricky to work with because of its printing temperature.
Printing with this filament requires a temperature that is higher than that needed to print ABS and Nylon. This requires you to print your PC filament on a heated bed with a slightly higher setting. This filament is not recommended for beginners because it is challenging to work with.
PETG: Glycol-modified Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETG) is one of the commonly used plastics in the world. It is a variation of polyethylene terephthalate, and it is highly valued in the 3D printing industry for its mechanical strength. Its qualities include; high-impact resistance, high strength, heat-stable, clear, chemically stable, and prone to damage by UV.
It is used to produce mechanical parts, protective components, and objects that come in contact with food. Its laminating and printable characteristics make it an excellent material for store fixtures, electronic devices, credit cards, and signages. In addition, it is a perfect material for medical containers because of its heat stability which can withstand steam sterilization.
This material is challenging to work with, it degrades quickly when constantly exposed to sunlight, and it is not a good material to use for support structures.
TUP: Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) possesses a desirable combination of rigidity and elasticity. This material is very flexible, abrasion-resistant, impact-resistant, stable against solvents and oils, it cannot be polished or sanded, and it is prone to deformation in the extruder. This material is used to produce inflatable rafts, footwear, mobile device cases, and sporting goods.
Although it is recommended, TPU does not require a heated bed when printing. This material exhibits minimal shrinkage and warping, and it does not produce fumes while printing. However, you will need to store this material in an airtight atmosphere because it is hygroscopic and quickly absorbs moisture.
1.3, How Does FDM 3D Printer Develop From Desktop To Industrial Level
Most desktop 3D printers use the Fused Deposition Model, and they are similar to their industrial-level printers. They all use the extrusion technique, printing objects layer by layer, but their capabilities differ. FDM 3D desktop printers are cheap and easy to use by almost everyone for little prototypes. FDM 3D industrial printers, on the other hand, are huge 3d printers used for industries like R&D for the production of bigger and stronger prototypes.
Although 3d desktop printers can produce low-quality prototypes like the design for architecture classes, they are not suitable to handle high-grade materials, large format 3d Printing, and high precision requirements. To produce precise and quality parts for industries like aeronautics and automotive industries, you need industrial 3d printers, ranging from 400x400x400mm 3d printers to 1000x1000x1000mm 3d printers.
3D desktop printers use materials such as PLA and ABS because the printer head can comfortably extrude these materials at temperatures of about 220 to 280 degrees Celsius. However, if you are dealing with tougher materials like carbon, PC, and Nylon, it is advisable to use an Industrial 3d printer to handle the high extruding temperatures.
Also, a large industrial 3d printer has a greater production capability when compared to 3d desktop printers. This is because the industrial-grade 3d printer helps you complete your task faster, and they have a larger printing area which means the production of larger parts.

This means that you can add your design and concept and watch your imagination come to reality. The parts of the drone that you might not be able to print are the electronic, motor, and battery. You might have to purchase these parts. But you can print other parts and assemble them by yourself. The 400x400x400mm 3d printer creates lighter and effective parts at a faster rate.
Factors Affecting Efficiency of FDM 3D Printer in Manufacturing Industries
The benefits of using FDM 3d printing for industrial manufacturing are enormous. It is cost-effective, faster, fewer errors, waste reduction, and efficient. But there are some difficulties with this technology that one must consider before deciding to use 3d Printing. Knowing the issues and difficulties will assist you in finding a better way to address them.
Expertise: Using FDM 3d printing technology requires those familiar and well trained to use these machines, especially when operating large machines. Knowing the technology will yield a more efficient outcome. If you are hoping to use these 3d printers for manufacturing, you need to be able to operate them.
There is no need to have machines but no technical know-how on how to use them. The problem is that there is a lack of expertise in using this technology for industrial-scale manufacturing. If there is no expertise, then it means that the efficiency of manufacturing will be significantly affected. That is why our 3d printers, such as the 400x400x400mm 3d printer, are user-friendly and easy to operate, especially for new users.
Materials available for your industry: while it is true that FDM 3d printing applies to most industrial manufacturing, the materials for these various industries differ. The filaments used for prototypes and display models are different from the filament materials used for other fields like automotive, aerospace, and the medical field.
This means that you can not just use any material; you need to get the exact materials for your industry to yield better results. Using less quality materials or materials for other fields will affect the efficiency and outcome of manufacturing.
Software Development And Capabilities: Before you print any object, it has to be created by software design, and then you download this software and print what you want. In as much as it is easy for almost everyone to download the file for Printing, creating the software in the first place might be difficult.
It will be easy to download already made 3d designs; if you are hoping to create something unique, you need to know about using computer-aided design software, and not many people are trained in this area. This means that to create unique designs, we have to rely on those with computer design software.
Post Processing Needs: using an FDM 3d printer machine for industrial manufacturing can make detail-oriented prints challenging to achieve. This means that you will need to carry out a lot after-processing to achieve the detailed result you need.
If you are mass producing, it can be challenging to carry out after-processing for many printed products. This is one of the factors that might affect the efficiency of your manufacturing industry.
Main Components and Parts of FDM 3D Printer
To get the satisfying and efficient result of your FDM 3d printer, there are outstanding components and parts that make this particular 3d technology different from other 3d printers. First, let us look at some of the core and fundamental parts of the FDM 3d printer.
The Extruder: the extruder can also be referred to as the printer head. This printer head is directed by the computer, directing the nozzle’s path and movement as it moves across the build platform. This printer head movement creates the object according to the calculated path as set up by computer-aided design software.
The heated nozzle draws the object by melting the filament and extruding it onto the building platform. The nozzle extrudes this melted filament layer by layer, and when each layer has been printed, the height of the nozzle increases by an increment as it prepares for the next layer.
The print head can be categorized into two sections; the cold end and the hot end. The cold end is the part that locks the filament and gradually pushes it towards the hot end. As the name implies, the hot end possesses the hot temperature that melts the filament and deposits it on the printer bed.
Some FDM 3d printers come with dual extruders like our 400x400x400mm 3d printer. This means that you can simultaneously print with two different filaments. These double extruders can either be attached to the same print head or connected to different print heads.
Print Bed: this is the component where your printed model rests while printing. The FDM 3d filaments are deposited on this flat surface layer by layer. The print bed can be made with different materials like glass and metal. Each of these materials has its various advantages,
For example, the glass flatbed material is superbly flat, meaning that layers can be added easily and easy to clean, and inexpensive. Aluminum, on the other hand, heats up faster than glass. Our 400x400x400mm 3d printer is made up of heating aluminum substrate plus a black crystal glass platform
Also, there are different kinds of print beds; there are heated and non-heated print beds. A non-heated print bed might be ideal for lower materials like PLA, but it might require you to use heated print beds for advanced filament materials. The type of print bed used helps to enhance adhesion and the stability of your first layer.
Motion Controllers: the motion controllers are fed with instructions by the motherboard. They receive the instructions and do the movement, and these motion controllers move around three axes; XYZ. The X-axis and Y-axis movement is controlled by the belts connected to the motors. The stepper motors are responsible for the mechanical movement of the print head. These motors rotate in steps; that is why they are called stepper motors. The stepper driver controls them, and they connect with the X, Y, Z-axis. Our 400x400x400mm 3d printer has accurate nozzle positioning, which prevents printing products from deviation.
Threaded rods are another set of motors that help the print head move upward and downward. The Z-axis is dependent on the threaded rods for its movement. These threaded rods are connected to the stepper motors.
Print Material: this refers to the filament used for Printing. FDM 3d printers use polymers as filament materials, and a variety of them are used for different objects and industries. These filaments are heated to different temperatures, causing them to melt, and are deposited on the print bed to print the required object.
These different types of filaments have their advantages and limitations. It is necessary to know what you want to print before you purchase any filament. Also, when you buy a printer, you need to be sure of the filament that is compatible with your printer. Not all FDM 3d printers are compatible with multiple filament materials. Our 400x400x400mm 3d printer is compatible with a wide variety of filaments
Motherboard or Controller board: the control or mainboard is the component of the FDM 3d printer responsible for the smooth processing of the machine. We can call the mainboard the brain of the 3d printer because it is responsible for the fundamental operation.
The control board receives the instructions sent from the computer, and it directs the motion component. The mainboard also interprets sensors and signals, so your control board needs to be of excellent quality to achieve high performance.
Frame: The frame of your 3d printer helps keep all the components together. The frame maintains the stability of your machine, and it is made with different materials. The common materials used for frames are acrylic and metal.
It is essential to buy an FDM 3d printer with a robust frame; it makes your printer more durable. Also, there are open and closed frame designs. You will find some printers with semi-closed frames. One of the advantages of the closed frame over the open frame is that it maintains consistent temperature around the print space. Our 400x400x400mm 3d printer has a fully sealed chassis.
User Interface: Most 3d printers these days come with a user interface, an LCD controller that allows you to use your 3d printer without a computer. This display can help you control the printer’s settings, and the 3d printer can work as a stand-alone.
This means that the printer also comes with a space for an SD card for your FDM 3d printer to read the software instructions. Our 400x400x400mm 3d printer comes with a free U disk and SD card.
How To Choose A Suitable FDM 3d Printer For Your Industry
We have stated earlier on how FDM 3d printing machines can be used in different industries and the many benefits they possess. Therefore, before buying any machine, it is advisable to consider what you intend to do and which 3d printer will be best to help you achieve your aim.
Some FDM 3d printing machines are best suited for some tasks than others, and before you invest your resources, there are many things you need to consider before you purchase a 3D printer. We will look at some of the essential things to watch out for when selecting a 3d printer for your industry.
5.1, Your Application Industry
Your application field is an essential element to consider before buying any FDM 3d printer. It could be a professional field, or it could be for hobby purposes. Your application industry will determine the size of the printer, the speed, and the type of filament materials to purchase. For example, the 400x400x400mm 3d printer is an industrial-grade printer that helps you print your industrial objects.
If you aim to use FDM 3d printing to produce little objects like toys, little models for things like planes, ships, and cars, you will go for the machines that suit your need. If, on the other hand, you hope to produce large objects like parts for automotive, ships, airplanes, and medical equipment, you will go for large industrial FDM 3d printers that will best suit your needs.
You are using FDM 3d printing to achieve your aim in both cases, but you are reaching out to different audiences and expectations. You can take a look at our catalog to help you pick the best 3d printer, and if you are not sure of your choice, you can reach out to us through our contact.
5.2, Print Size Requirements
An FDM 3d printing machine for toys would differ in size from the printer for industrial products like medical equipment parts and spare parts for the automotive and aerospace industry. If you are printing bigger objects, you need a bigger 3d printer to help you print easily. A machine like Dreambot3D’s 400x400x400mm 3d printer will be best for printing large and industrial-grade objects.
If you use a smaller machine to print more significant objects, you might need to print them in parts and then assemble them, which might take more time and energy. For effective FDM 3d printing, it is necessary to be aware of the unit of measure for your CAD file. This file will determine how small or big your print size is going to be.
Also, the weight and size of your printed object will determine which FDM 3d printer to use. Different filament materials will produce different results on the size, weight, and dimension of the object printed, regardless of whether you used the same CAD file for both filament materials.
5.3, Printing Material Requirements
If you have been paying attention, you will know that your industry will determine the type of filament material you need. We use FDM 3d printing because of its efficiency, attention to detail, and the ability to recreate designs and models with metal and thermoplastic materials.
This is not a case where one shoe fits all. The different filament materials are best suited for different industries. You can use PLA for toys, display designs, and models, and it will be perfect. But you cannot use the same material for printing automotive parts and things like glass shields. Some filaments are more durable and stronger than others, so to get the best result, it would be essential to know what materials best suit the object you wish to manufacture. The 400x400x400mm 3d printer is compatible with many filament materials.
FDM 3d Printer Buying Guide
Buying a suitable FDM 3d printer is a considerable investment, especially if you seek to buy an industrial FDM 3d printer which will cost you a good amount. So, it is good to go over many details that others might take for granted before you commit yourself to buy any 3d printer.

If you want to get different colors, you can use the single-color print, but you will need to post-process your object by painting it. This will take you a long time than having a dual extrusion printer that prints multiple colors. Our 400x400x400mm 3d printer can be customized with double nozzles to help you print multiple colors.
6.7, Pay Attention To Details
While you may be excited about buying a new FDM 3d printer that is fascinating, it is essential to pay attention to details that most people seem to overlook. Paying attention to details will make you get the best printer and avoid any confusion and defects regarding the printer’s life.
For example, although FDM 3d printers print with filament materials, not all filaments can be used in some machines. So, it is necessary to know the type of filaments that is compatible with your 3d printer. In addition, each filament material has a different melting point; you need to be sure that your extruder or nozzle can handle the melting point of your filament.
Also, when buying a 3d printer, it is vital to consider the build volume of the objects you wish to print. Finally, you should know that the speed setting can influence the quality of your output.
6.8, Put Safety First
