FDM Lightweight Structures Design Guide


Many aerospace and automotive applications require parts with a very high stiffness-to-weight ratio. Thanks to the design freedom of FDM technology, special structures can be created to optimize material use and maximize part stiffness.

FDM offers several material options with attributes that make it suitable for a variety of lightweight structural applications. From ASA to ULTEM 1010 resin, this design guide will help you learn what material characteristics are ideal for your application.

Download this Stratasys design guide and learn how to:

  • Produce strong, lightweight parts
  • Select the appropriate FDM material for your application
  • Design structures using the most effective method of construction
