FDM 3D printing is an additive manufacturing technology. In simple terms, it lays down a melted layer of plastic layer by layer until the model is complete. One of the main downsides to FDM printing is overhangs; these require support material and can leave an undesired finish. This is something to consider when designing your part.
3D Printing with SLA
SLA 3d printing is fantastic for prototypes; it creates an almost injection moulded look and feel to models. Your parts will always need to be supported during the printing process and can leave tiny scars on the surface. Printed parts are easy to sand and remove these scares. SLA printing is not really suited to parts that need to be used in functional situations.
