The paper presents the results of mechanical properties research of samples made in the Selective Laser Sintering technology. Polyamide powder PA 3200 GF reinforced with glass fiber was the material used to build the model. Samples subjected to a uniaxial tensile test were made in accordance with ASTM D638 – V standard. The printing direction was the technological parameter of the study. The analysis of the results showed that the addition of fiberglass significantly influenced the improvement of mechanical properties, especially the isotropic of mechanical properties with respect to the printing direction.

. Onion epidermis was chosen due to its simple single-layer structure, the lack of intercellular spaces and ease of sample preparation. The geometry of the FEM model was created on basis of images obtained using a confocal scanning laser microscope CSLM (OLYMPUS FluoView300, Olympus Corporation, Tokyo, Japan). The geometrical features of onion tissue were reconstructed in FEM environment by means of vectorization procedure. Then, uniaxial tensile test were carried out to determine the mechani- cal parameters of tissue samples. Mechanical testing was carried
