SIMULATION MODEL OF POLYCARBONATE MATERIAL FOR ADDITIVE TECHNOLOGY FDM

Abstract

The Department of Robotics at the VSB-TU Ostrava has been long-term involved in the improvement of parameters in parts produced by additive technology. It primarily concerns component parts as well as bigger functional units of mobile robots. However, it is not exceptional to produce a complete bearing frame of a mobile robot or an effector with the majority of parts produced by additive technology. This paper follows up previous publications from the area of material properties of “printed” polycarbonate, where, on the basis of tensile and bend tests, basic mechanical properties of printed polycarbonate were verified. Based on these paper-described performed tests, values have been acquired and subsequently a simulation model for the above-material has been designed. The simulation model and found out mechanical properties of the material should primarily serve to designers at the phase of drafting parts or functional units produced by additive technology FDM.
