Influence of process parameters of printing on mechanical properties of plastic parts produced by FDM 3D printing technology
MetadataShow full item record
Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is a fast-growing 3D printing technology. This technology expands rapidly even in households. Most users set print parameters only according to their own experience, regardless of the final mechanical properties. In order to predict the mechanical behaviour of the FDM-printed components, it is important to understand not only the properties of the printing material but also the effect of the printing process parameters on the mechanical properties. Components manufactured by FDM technology have an anisotropic structure, therefore the filling angle, fill shape, air gap, print orientation, and print temperature affect the resulting mechanical properties. This work deals with the change of mechanical properties depending on the setting of the filling angle, the shape of the filling, the orientation of the parts during printing, the influence of the material and pigment manufacturer
