Clemson University & BMW Selects Stratasys

The students decided to build the parts with the Stratasys Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) process because of its strong engineering-grade thermoplastics and the ability to produce large parts by building separate sections and bonding them together with the same thermoplastic.

The students sent the design files to Stratasys Direct Manufacturing  to quote FDM services and discovered the parts would be 75 percent cheaper and ready 3-4 months faster compared to steel stamping: " Overall it was great working with the Stratasys Direct Manufacturing (SDM) team and at the end of the day we got a chance to learn about a new technology which could very well be the future of low volume production parts.”

Stratasys Direct Manufacturing built 14 parts for Deep Orange in ABS-M30 on the  Stratasys Fortus 900mc 3D Production System , including: four pieces of the tailgate, four pieces for the side frames, four pieces for the roof and rear window and two side panels.
