Four different materials were evaluated after being fabricated via fused deposition modeling (FDM) technique. The materials used were Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA), PLA with wood, PLA with carbon fiber, and Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). The samples fabricated were specimens for the tensile test, which was conducted at 5mm/min at room temperature. Weilbull statistics was conducted for each sample composition, as well as scanning electron microscopy. Samples were printed at two different process temperatures. Defects and surface finishing were analyzed. Some parts printed and analyzed as potential impact energy absorbers are also presented in this research.
