FDM 3D printers streamline processes, from design through manufacturing, reducing costs, and eliminating traditional barriers along the way. With FDM, a designer can create an idea and test it the same day. Industries can cut lead times and costs, with products that turn out better and get to market faster. Breakthrough designs, process innovations, just-in-time manufacturing — whatever you can imagine, FDM can make it happen.


FDM systems are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce. From small to large, Purple Platypus can help you find the perfect printer for your needs.


FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting, and dimensionally stable parts.


FDM 3D printed parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools, and production parts.

Our clients say

I calculated the cost of outsourcing prototypes for one year, and then the cost of bringing it in house. Even after factoring in the cost of the equipment and materials as well as staff time, I still concluded that we could significantly reduce our costs by doing it ourselves.
