Abstract

The presented article deals with the research of commercially available BASF Ultrafuse 316LX filament intended for processing by the Fused Filament Fabrication additive technology. This material contains a high proportion of metal particles. The aim of the research was to compare the resulting mechanical properties of the Ultrafuse 316LX not only with conventional rolled AISI 316L stainless steel, but also with the AISI 316L material processed by another additive technology – Selective Laser Melting. Several sets of tensile test specimens were printed from Ultrafuse 316LX using Felix Tec4 machine to determine specific mechanical properties. The same sets of samples were made from AISI 316L powder using Selective Laser Melting additive technology for direct comparison of selected mechanical properties. After the whole manufacturing process, the Ultrafuse 316LX show very interesting mechanical properties with adequate strength and increased ductility.
