Influence of infill and nozzle diameter on porosity of FDM printed parts with rectilinear grid pattern
Rights accessOpen Access
The aim of the paper is to analyze the effect of nozzle diameter and infill on porosity and pore size of FDM printed specimens with rectilinear grid pattern. Two different nozzle diameters (0.2 and 0.4 mm), as well as four different infill values (20 %, 40 %, 60 % and 80 %) were used. Experimental results for pore size agree with theoretical results. On the contrary, low experimental porosity was obtained, especially for high infill values, because printed samples show fewer pores than expected. The higher infill, the lower porosity and pore size. Higher nozzle diameter implies higher pore size but similar porosity.
