An additive manufacturing field offers several different processes. Stuke Iowa opted for the FDM process (fused deposition modeling). The FDM process is a manufacturing process with which a work piece is assembled via the process of the melting of plastic material.The FDM process prints durable, accurate and repeatable parts as large as 36 x 24 x 36 inch. The parts can be built using only a 3D model.


Following materials are available:

  • ABS
  • PC
  • PEI (Ultem 9085 – aviation authorized in acc. with FAR 25.853 and ABD0031)


Component size

  • Component size with ABS and PEI: 36“ x 24“ x 3
  • 6“ [inch]Component size with PC: 16“ x 14“ x 16“ [inch]
  • With large components, the option of manufacturing single parts and join them together is possible


This manufacturing process is suitable for:

  • Samples parts
  • Prototypes
  • Visual objects
  • Prefabricated components
  • Small series
  • Spare parts
  • Mock-up



  • Reduction of development time
  • No tool costs
  • Fast processing time from the 3D model to the end product
  • Possible weight optimization
  • Possibility to improve wall thicknesses
  • Accuracy of repetition and adaptation
  • Honeycomb structure possible
  • Manufacturing in accordance to defined description of processes



Parts can be lacquered or covered with:

  • Carbon
  • Film with a wooden, granite, marble, or many other optics
  • Paint
  • Chrome plating
