The present work is dedicated to the evaluation of a first stage of structural viability for the implementation of the FDM manufacturing technology in an industrial process in order to obtain functional parts. With this goal, a real part manufactured by the injection moulding process, of which the mechanical properties are known, has been selected. In the present work, this part has been manufactured by FDM in order to study the current feasibility of applying this manufacturing process change to industry. All of this will give an overview of the current state of the FDM technology in order to analyze how much it lacks to be competitive against the current technologies in the world of the industrial manufacturing.
