Abstract

The purpose of this article is to perform a systematic analysis and to present the main parameters for the 3D printing process. To evaluate these parameters, as convincingly as possible, a support has been chosen as a subject that presents different characteristics both from the point of view of mechanical demands, to which it is subject, as well as geometry. In this context, the article highlights the steps that are necessary to get 3D printed objects to meet the initial design requirements. For the assessment of the degree of influence, parameters were identified and then they were evaluated to identify an optimal solution. In the conclusions are presented some useful values for practical applications of this type.
