on the manufacturing floor. There are
countless times during the day where a manufacturing engineer needs a tool to
help hold, position, place, or organize parts. For those reasons jigs,
fixtures, check gauges, and other floor tools are ideas to be 3D printed, primarily
using FDM technology.
easier and safer. And companies that use FDM find that they have more of them

and Ultem that are available on Stratasys FDM printers, workers are able to
quickly print the necessary tools needed to get a job done and always have them
on hand as part repeat-ability is easily done on Stratasys machines. From R&D
through inspection FDM is the tool to make work more efficient with jigs and
