Abstract

3D printing technology has developed quickly in the past decades and has been widely used in many areas, from models and hobby areas to construction objects like buildings and bridges. As one type of 3D printing method, Fused Deposit Modelling (FDM) can create 3D objects easily and so it become one of the most popular methods of additive manufacturing. In this paper, application of Taguchi method was exercised on six main printing parameters (layer thicknesses, Infill percentage, Raster angle, Infill speed, Infill pattern, and Nozzle temperature) to analyse the effective variable for selected objective properties (ultimate tensile strength, elastic modulus, mass and strength-to weight ratio). Using this method of experimental design, parameters with little influence can be determined for the next variation of experiment, thereby reducing the cost of experiment.
