Abstract

The design and development of elastic products for additive manufacturing has theparticularity that the manufacturing parameters can affect the aesthetic and functional propertiesdue to the flexible nature of the material. Therefore, the selection of each of them should not beanalysed separately. For this reason, in this work, different printing parameters were exploredsequentially, observing their influence on the final finish obtained with the aim of adjusting theappropriate values to provide valid prototypes and products. Layer height, wall thickness,followability, extrusion temperature, shrinkage and printing speeds were studied. As a result, theparameters that offer the best results, with respect to the quality of finish, in 3D printing of TPUfor application to the design of elastic products were determined
