ABSTRACT:
Inter-operational surgery supplies manufactured additively using the FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) technology are required to be sterilized before use. After manufacturing, the part should be sterilized using one of commonly used processes, without losing its dimensions and shape. The paper presents studies on manufacturing and sterilizing samples made out of ABS material and influence of the sterilization process on the dimensional accuracy of these samples.
