Abstract

The evaluation of the tensile strength of printed parts by means of fused deposition modeling (FDM) or fused filament fabrication (FFF) is essential, since parts whose resistance does not differ significantly depending on the percentage of filling used can be obtained, optimizing [...]

Abstract

Optimum implant positioning and technique used for its alignment are vital parameters to improve clinical results. Visual cues and jigs are utilized in the recent surgical techniques, which lead to some errors in the flexion-extension axis identification. Surgeons have used computer-assisted [...]

Abstract

The objective of this paper is to optimise the internal structure of 3D printed parts produced by Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) process. In 3D printing, the term infill refers to the internal structure of the part. The infill design is generally uniform throughout the part. [...]

Abstract

The photopolymerization-based additive manufacturing process, including 3D printing techniques such as stereolithography and digital light processing, has undergone considerable development over the last few decades. These techniques provide flexibility in the physical and chemical [...]

Abstract

Three dimensional (3D) printing or Rapid Prototyping (RP) provides an innovative additive manufacturing method for prototypes and functional components. Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is a fast growing rapid prototyping technology for fabricating thermoplastic parts due to its [...]

Abstract

In the present work the feasability of 3D printintg, more specifically the FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) technology, to manufacture moulds of RTM in the phase of prototyping has been demonstrated. The upper part of the mould for a side-intrusion bar of a front door of a car has [...]

Abstract

3D printing is a promising additive manufacturing technology capable of producing functional parts of continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTPCs). Thus recyclable parts having complex geometries are obtained in a simple manner [1]. In addition, the use of thermoplastic [...]

Abstract

Additive manufacturing, and more specifically FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication), makes it possible to manufacture complex designs that are difficult to manufacture using conventional processes that improve the mechanical behaviour of the component. In the present work, the axial [...]

Abstract

The design and manufacture of sandwich structures allow for many variants related to core and skin types, but their fabrication is very limited with conventional technologies. Recent [...]

Abstract

In this study, the interlaminar fracture toughness of 3D printed continuous carbon fibre-reinforced polyamide was characterized under Mode I and II loadings. 3D printing of fracture test samples presents difficulties, mainly shrinkage and excessive warping. To minimize these effects, [...]
