The reliability of reproducing automotive components made by FDM printing in reverse engineering

Open access


The purpose of the article is to show the practical side of reverse engineering.Many times during the process of optimizing parts, before we intervene in the tool that produces them, we want to makesure that the optimization will work in practice.For this purpose, currently, we often use 3D printers. Unfortunately, they introduce distortions of geometry to the printed prototyperesultingfrom the technology of its production.
