ABSTRACT:
The article tackles the possibilities and effectiveness of different printing strategies on Easy 3D MAKER printer. This printer is printing with Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) method. The operating software of the 3D printer offers various settings, which influence the quality and effecticity of printing. In the article there is described the printing of a sample with all fillament print strategies available in the 3D maker software. The fillament print strategy of the printed model fundamentally influences the consumption of printing material and time at printing the component. The consumption of printing material was assessed indirectly by weight of particular printed samples. For each printing strategy there were 5 samples printed out. The Octagramspiral strategy resulted as the best in material consumption aspect. The most effective strategy in printing time perspective is the Concentric strategy.
