3D Printing

Infinite Layers,

Limitless Imagination

At Why Engineering, we specialise in Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) for 3D printing. FDM is a highly versatile and cost-effective 3D printing technology that extrudes thermoplastic
materials layer by layer to create robust and functional parts.


This additive manufacturing process allows us to build complex geometries with precision. Whether you require rapid prototyping, custom designs, or end-use products, our FDM 3D printing service guarantees excellent results.

FDM is one of the most cost-effective 3D printing technologies available, making it suitable for both prototyping and small to medium production runs.


At Why Engineering, we leverage FDM's capabilities to provide you with versatile and budget-friendly solutions that align with your project goals.

Our extensive experience in FDM 3D printing ensures that your projects are handled with the utmost care and expertise.


At Why Engineering, we've honed our skills in the world of FDM, giving us a deep understanding of its nuances and the ability to offer you exceptional solutions that deliver remarkable results.


We're adept at fine-tuning crucial print parameters such as layer height, infill density, and print speed. These details can significantly impact print quality, and our experience allows us to optimise them effectively.

We provide both of the most popular plastics used in FDM 3D printing.


As thermoplastics, PLA (Polylactic Acid) and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) both soften and enter a moldable state when heated then return to a solid state when cooled, making them perfect for 3D printing.


More environmentally friendly than traditional plastics, PLA plastic is usually sourced from corn starch or sugar cane, while ABS is petroleum-based.


In comparison, PLA can print with sharper corners and edges. This is due to the lower printing temperature of PLA lowering warping during the cooling stage.


While PLA is also stronger, it does have a lower melting point which can affect the performance of the material at high temperatures.


Although neither of the materials are very flexible, ABS is more flexible than PLA.


As for biodegradability, PLA is biodegradable while ABS is not. Although ABS is still recyclable.

FDM-produced parts are renowned for their exceptional strength and durability, rendering them well-suited for a diverse array of applications, from functional prototypes to end-use products.


We harness the intrinsic qualities of FDM materials to craft parts that not only meet your expectations but outperform them in even the most demanding scenarios.

FDM technology excels at building intricate and complex designs, allowing for boundless creative freedom in your product development journey.

With FDM's exceptional capabilities as our canvas, we empower you to turn the most intricate concepts into tangible realities, breathing life into your boldest ideas.

Leveraging our advanced FDM machines and streamlined processes, we can deliver your projects quickly without compromising on quality.


At Why Engineering, we understand that time-to-market is often a critical factor in your project's success, and our commitment to efficiency ensures that your parts are in your hands when you need them.

Each printed part undergoes thorough quality checks to ensure it meets your specifications and our high-quality standards.


At Why Engineering, our dedication to excellence extends beyond words; it's ingrained in every facet of our operations. We hold ourselves to the highest standards to consistently deliver top-grade results with every single project.


Reliability: Our commitment to quality translates into reliable performance. We understand that your projects rely on the precision of our prints, and we take that responsibility seriously.


Consistency: Consistency is the hallmark of our approach. Regardless of the complexity or quantity of your project, you can count on us to deliver consistent, high-quality FDM prints that mirror your exact specifications.

We provide thorough technical support throughout the design and printing process, ensuring the optimization of your designs for successful printing. Recognizing the intricacies involved in the journey from concept to the finished part, our commitment to your success remains unwavering at every stage.
