1 Improving PLA-based Material for FDM 3 D-Printers Using Minerals ( Principles and Method Development )

  title={1 Improving PLA-based Material for FDM 3 D-Printers Using Minerals ( Principles and Method Development )},
  author={Saied H. Kochesfahani},
A method has been developed to study the performance and suitability of thermoplastic polymeric material for Additive Manufacturing (3D-printing) based on Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). The method has been used to study the benefits of minerals for PLA-based material (filaments) that are commonly used in FDM 3D-printing. An optimized formulation has been presented that enhances the printing performance and print quality, reduces warpage and curling of the edges, and allows 3D-printed PLA… Expand
