Abstract Continuous Fibre Reinforced Thermoplastic Composites (CFRTPCs) are becoming alternative materials to replace the conventional thermosetting polymers and metals due to excellent mechanical performance, recycling and potential used in lightweight structures. Fused deposition modelling (FDM) is a promising additive manufacturing technology and an alternative of conventional processes for the fabrication of CFRTPCs due to its ability to build functional parts having complex geometries. The ...

Fused deposition modeling possesses great advantages in fabricating high performance composites with controllable structural designs. As such, it has attracted attention from medical, automatic, and aerospace fields. In this paper, the influence of short carbon fibers (SCFs) and the orthogonal building orientation on the flexural properties of printed polyether ether ketone (PEEK) composites are systematically studied. The results show that the addition of SCFs raises the uniform nucleation proc...

In this work, we study the mechanical properties under compression of composite materials with reinforced-rigid-matrix produced by additive manufacturing. The study considers different fiber orientations and number of reinforcement layers of the specimens. The experimental investigation was carried out for parts produced with a nylon matrix and fiberglass reinforcement. The composite material was manufactured through fused deposition modeling (FDM) in a Markforged Mark Two 3D printer, which allo...

As the applications for additive manufacturing have continued to grow, so too has the range of available materials, with more functional or better performing materials constantly under development. This work characterizes a copper-filled polyamide 6 (PA6) thermoplastic composite designed to enhance the thermal conductivity of fused filament fabrication (FFF) parts, especially for heat transfer applications. The composite was mixed and extruded into filament using twin screw extrusion. Because th...

Abstract 3D printing, more formally known as Additive Manufacturing (AM), is already being adopted for rapid prototyping and soon rapid manufacturing. This review provides a brief discussion about AM and also the most employed AM technologies for polymers. The commonly-used ASTM and ISO mechanical test standards which have been used by various research groups to test the strength of the 3D-printed parts have been reported. Also, a summary of an exhaustive amount of literature regarding the mecha...

Abstract This paper reports the thermal and mechanical properties of carbon fiber (CF) reinforced polyamide 12 (PA12) composites for fused deposition modeling (FDM) process. The printable filaments of carbon fiber/PA12 composites with different mass fraction were fabricated and applied in FDM. The results indicate that the tensile strength and flexural strength of 10 wt% CF/PA12 composites are enhanced by 102.2% and 251.1% respectively. The laser-flash diffusivity analysis measurements exhibit r...

Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) of polymer-fiber composites has transformed AM into a robust manufacturing paradigm and enabled producing highly customized parts with significantly improved mechanical properties, compared to un-reinforced polymers. Almost all commercially available AM methods could benefit from various fiber reinforcement techniques. Recent developments in 3D printing methods of fiber reinforced polymers, namely, fused deposition modeling (FDM), laminated object manufacturi...

Abstract Additive Manufacturing (AM) is of particular interest in the context of composite part production as AM promises the production of integrated, complex structures with low lead times. Currently, AM is used for tooling and sandwich cores with added functionalities. This paper presents four design principles that improve the production of composites parts during layup, handling, curing and post processing in the layup process. Design principles are applied to a hat-stiffener, a highly inte...

3D printing (additive manufacturing (AM)) has enormous potential for rapid tooling and mass production due to its design flexibility and significant reduction of the timeline from design to manufacturing. The current state-of-the-art in 3D printing focuses on material manufacturability and engineering applications. However, there still exists the bottleneck of low printing resolution and processing rates, especially when nanomaterials need tailorable orders at different scales. An interesting ph...

Abstract Short fiber reinforced polymer composites processed by selective laser sintering (SLS) generally show an oriented fiber structure, which leads to anisotropic properties of fabricated components. However, the formation mechanism of fiber orientation is barely investigated. In this study, the oriented structure of the carbon fiber/polyamide12 composites processed by SLS is characterized using the X-ray computed tomography, and the role of powder-spreading in formation of the fiber orienta...

Abstract Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is one of the most commonly utilized low-cost 3D printing technology, which employs the hot-melt and adhesive properties of thermoplastic materials. As one of the most important classes of engineering thermoplastic polymer materials, polyamide (PA) possesses excellent comprehensive performance. However, the FDM fabricated products based on pure PA are seriously warped, distorted, and lack of shape stability due to the accumulation of shrinkage stress gene...
