1 By Megan Hollander and Andrew Chalifoux PROPERTIES OF PLASTICS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS TO RAPID PROTOTYPING

2  To investigate the properties of plastics within prototyping  By generating information about the properties of ABSplus plastic and VeroBlue plastic both before and after annealing and comparing these properties to other non-3D printed plastics will help evaluate practical and useful applications of 3D printing  By providing this information, companies and individuals who work with plastics could be informed to make more efficient products PURPOSE

3  Created two dog bones made of ABSplus plastic from the Dimension 1200 ES 3D printers and two dog bone made of VeroBlue plastic from the Object 30 Scholar printer  Anneal one dog bone of ABS Plastic and one dog bone of VeroBlue plastic  Test the four dog bones in the Instron 8801  Create Stress-Strain Diagrams and analyze the physical properties of the four dog bones to see how annealing affected them PROCEDURE

8  VeroBlue RGD480 shows notable characteristics for yield strength before and after it is pre-heated; however, due to thie high costs of VeroBlue plastic, it is impractical to use VeroBlue for 3D printing applications, as compared to Kydex, acrylic, and polycarbonate  Unlike VeroBlue, ABSplus is not affected by annealing. ABSplus represents very similar properties as ABS plastic when it is not 3D printed.  There is an opportunity for the quality 3D printed prototypes to improve; however, the relationship between cost, strength, and material needs to be thoroughly considered.
