Mechanical data on 3D printed test specimens at 3 different angles

November 17, 2022 Published by

In order to better simulate 3D printed projects and compare materials between each other, we’ve tested our composite FFF filaments in 3 different printing directions.

This mechanical data was obtained by a series of normalized tensile tests (ISO 527-2/1A) on a large amount of 3D printed test specimens in our factory at Louargat, France.

  • Along the tension stress, to obtain the maximal resistance
  • Successively at 45° and – 45°, close to 3D printing standards
  • Perpendicular to the tension stress, to obtain the minimal resistance
nanovia tensile tests

A tensile tests consist of exerting an increasing force, or a constant deformation to a test specimen deforming it until it breaks.

The obtained mechanical data allows :

  • Scaling parts to the amount of stress they need to resist
  • See how the material behaves under stress, for instance its flexibility.
  • Control the quality of production batches
  • Compare materials between one another

The tensile tests were done by our material scientists over at the Plateau Technique ComposiTIC, in Lorient.
