FDM Direct Digital Manufacturing
The Fortus 380mc and 450mc build parts in the materials you’re familiar with, but with the advanced complexity and high requirements needed for today’s manufacturers. With easy-to-use interfaces and software controls, the Fortus printing systems make it easy to produce complex parts more efficiently and effectively.
For demanding applications, rely on the Fortus 450mc for high-performance materials such as FDM Nylon 12CF (carbon fiber) , ULTEM™ resins and ST-130 soluble material for sacrificial composite tooling.
Complex, high-requirement parts production means you can embed hardware, circuitry, and other non-thermoplastic materials into your parts easily, with minimal downtime for changeover.
High-capacity material options on the 450mc increase your unattended build time up to two full weeks.
Advanced additive manufacturing is combined with the latest advances in FDM technology so you can expand your manufacturing business with speed, agility, and the freedom of your own designs.
Reduced operation and training time since Fortus systems require minimal training to operate and maintain, with a simple touchscreen interface and easy-to-replace build trays and loading options.
No special facility requirements means you can install the Fortus printing systems anywhere since they produce no noxious fumes, chemicals or waste.

Parts are produced within an accuracy of ± .127 mm (± .005 in.) or ± .0015 mm/mm (± .0015 in/in), whichever is greater).
Z part accuracy includes an additional tolerance of -0.000/+slice height.
Note: Accuracy is geometry-dependent. Achievable accuracy specification derived from statistical data at 95% dimensional yield.
