    Author(s): Alaeddine Oussai*, Zoltan Bartfai and Laszlo Katai

    Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is the most common 3D printing technology. In an additive process, an object is created by successive layering of material until the entire object is created so those process with different settings is important. Tensile test specimens of two types of printed Polyethylene terephthalate have been carried out to examine the mechanical properties. Virgin Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and recycled PET are the used materials for this research. A total of forty test pieces of the two types were evaluated. The differences in stress-strain curves, tensile strength values and, elongation at break were compared among the tested samples. .. View more»
