What is FFF Printing

FFF printing stands for “Fused Filament Fabrication” or “Fused Deposition Modeling” (FDM). It is a common method used in 3D printing, which involves the creation of objects by layering and fusing successive layers of a thermoplastic filament.

In FFF printing, a spool of thermoplastic filament is fed into a heated nozzle. The nozzle melts the filament, and the molten material is extruded in thin layers onto a build platform. The layers solidify quickly, bonding to each other to form a solid object. The printer moves the nozzle and the build platform to create the desired shape, following a computer-generated 3D model.

FFF printing is popular due to its simplicity, affordability, and wide availability. It is widely used for rapid prototyping, hobbyist projects, and even in some industrial applications. It allows users to create complex shapes and functional objects by building them layer by layer.
