1. introduction. 3d printing also referred as rapid prototyping or additive manufacturing, is a process of depositing matter layer by layer in order to fabricate net shape 3d objects 1,2 .it is a two-step process: 1 creating 3d computer model using various graphics software and 2 printing using all kinds of technologies such as fused laminated object manufacturing, deposition modeling
there has been a growing trend towards producing functional components using additive manufacturing am . a continuous wire polymer composite cwpc manufacturing method using an open-source desktop 3d printer is presented. the incorporation of continuous wires within am structures results in a composite structure.
a novel technique for the fabrication of woven composites using additive manufacturing am is presented and evaluated. to-date fibre reinforced composites deposited by am exhibit highly anisotropic properties as the individual layers do not interact, this study helps address this by printing of a 0/90 woven structure into one layer to aid in stress distribution.
the use of continuous fiber in additive manufacturing systems is not trivial, but it is being done. as this fabrication technology evolves and matures, options for applying it in everything from automotive to aerospace to consumer composites will expand tremendously, creating a host of new opportunities for the composites industry.
additive manufacturing am of polymer-fiber composites has transformed am into a robust manufacturing paradigm and enabled producing highly customized parts with significantly improved mechanical properties, compared to un-reinforced polymers.
the largest portion of additive manufacturing systems use polymers as the feedstock material, so advancements in polymer additive manufacturing can have a rapid impact on applications due to the large number of systems in the marketplace. to date, the primary market for additive manufacturing with polymers has been prototyping.
research direction for fiber reinforced polymer frp composite materials used is discussed based on the aforementioned six requirements to obtain optimized additively manufactured frp composites. the potential and challenges of am of frp composites are also highlighted. 2 additive manufacturing techniques for frpc
