What is the definition of 3D printing?
Well, 3D printing is an extremely broad definition for a range of technologies that differ in both their manufacturing processes and the materials they use. Omni3D is the first Polish manufacturer of industrial 3D printers using FFF technology, also known as FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling). Currently, this technology is the most widely used of all incremental methods (3D printing, 3D printing) in the world.
This technology uses thermoplastics in the manufacturing process. Printed models are created by applying successive layers of semi-liquid material, which is extruded from heated nozzles.

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene – one of the most popular plastic materials used for 3D printing in FFF technology, which is characterised by its strength and hardness, scratch resistance and insulating properties. ABS is not UV resistant. It is extruded at 230-260°C and used in printers with a heated work table. ABS can be used to create final pieces, parts for cars, and to produce home appliances, spare parts, electronics and toys. It is also used in prototyping and tooling.
