dc.description.abstractSince the introduction ofrapid prototyping technology as a tool for time compression and concurrent engineering in the design and manufacturing process, many enhancements and refinements have been made based on the experience of users and manufacturers of rapid prototyping equipment. These improvements contribute significantly to faster production of quality output from rapid prototyping systems. There are diverse control and material selection parameters that affect prototype models built using the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM®) process. This paper reviews the role of several of these parameters in the process. Data will be presented to help the user choose the appropriate material for specific applications including density, tensile modulus, flexural modulus, tensile strength, flexural strength, impact strength, and hardness. The integration of material, hardware, and software in the FDM technology begins with the understanding of the basic requirements ofthe machine and ends with an operating procedure to choose the parameters for optimal model output and efficiency. Some of the variables include: part geometry, deposition geometry, deposition speed, liquefier temperature, material, flow control parameters, etc. Designed experiments are used in material formulation through modeling parameter defmition activitiesen_US
