Stratasys 3D Printers give engineers the ability to manufacture real industrial thermoplastic parts direct from digital files. ABSi™ is an ideal material for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping and direct digital manufacturing.
Its strength is superior to standard ABS, and the translucent nature of ABSi is beneficial for monitoring material flow and light transmission, most commonly used for medical and automotive applications.
When combined with a Stratasys 3D Printer, ABSi gives you parts that are visually unique, dimensionally accurate, durable and hold their shape over time.

Take a closer look at some of Stratasys’ most popular and versatile FDM materials along with six useful applications.
The materials covered in this video span from standard plastics (ABS-M30 and ASA) to engineering (Nylon 12) and high performance plastics (ULTEM 9085 and ULTEM 1010).
ABSi-P500 is an ABS type with high impact strength. The semi-translucent material used to build the FDM parts is USP Class VI approved. Most commonly used for automotive and medical applications. Available in three colors.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer
Tough long-lasting parts
FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.
Meet production demands
Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.
With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.
Gain new possibilities
TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.
