© 2022 by the author.Nowadays, 3D printers, which have a wide range of applications, continue to become widespread and are more and more common. As a result, in addition to the visuality of the parts produced with this method, their mechanical properties have gained importance depending on where they are used. In addition to the many conveniences, it provides during the design and production phases according to traditional methods the features of the printing parameters used, especially the printing direction and angle, which vary depending on the direction. For this reason, it is necessary to determine how the mechanical properties change depending on these parameters. In this study, compression, tensile, and bending tests were carried out with samples produced by the FDM method using polyamide (PA) and carbon fiber reinforced PA (PA-CF) filaments. The effects of fiber reinforcement, raster angle, and frame on the mechanical properties were evaluated. The porosity of manufactured parts was also discussed.
