Determination of Fatigue Characteristics of 3D Printed Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

The usage of 3D printer technology has recently been important to industries, particularly when it comes to new product development. 3D printing is a technology that uses a layer-by-layer method to create a three-dimensional object or prototype. Because it can efficiently utilise raw resources and produce less waste, 3D printing has the potential to lower prices. However, research into the mechanical performance of 3D printed components is becoming scarce. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the fatigue properties of 3D printed ABS specimens. Because of its wide range of applications, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) has been chosen for material research. 3D printing and moulding specimens are the two types of specimens employed. The specimens were made using the fused deposition modelling (FDM) process. The ASTM D638 standard was used to create the dog bone shape part, and the mechanical qualities were determined by a tensile test. The fatigue test was performed at 40%, 60%, and 80% of the tensile strength, respectively. For all loading percentages, the moulded part has more fatigue cycles than the 3D printed part. Fatigue lifetimes were 911, 2645, and 26948 cycles for 40 percent, 60 percent, and 80 percent, respectively. According to the findings, 3D printed parts have a shorter fatigue life, making them unsuitable for industrial applications. However, by adjusting various parameters, the 3D printed object might be enhanced and used in low-strength applications.
