Abstract—Additive technologies represent a broad portfolio of methods and procedures for achieving the desired product properties by adding materials. The original meaning of visualization and testing of spatial properties in assemblies is enhanced by requirements for functional properties. The use of the engineering component created by the additive technology depends primarily on the mechanical properties that directly determine the function of the component in the assembly or separately. In this paper, we present the results of research on the mechanical properties of three-dimensional (3D) print materials, depending on methods for the creation and analysis of 3D models and selected technological parameters of printing by a Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) method. This is a printing method based on the application of polymeric materials in a viscous state in layers. These are technologies with affordable equipment, materials, and print progress. Results are obtained by standardized measurements of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene print samples, which is considered the default FDM 3D print material.
