Improving the mechanical performance of a printed part often comes at the expense of printing speed, affordability and quality. In this study we quantify the impact of different layer heights and infill settings on performance, and we try to help users choose the optimal settings by clearly laying out the trade-offs faced by the user. We provide the layer height and infill settings we would pick depending on the application requirements.
The key parameters we look into are infill %, layer height and infill pattern. In the main body of this study, we provide a detailed description of the influence these parameters have on max stress, elongation at break, rigidity (Young Modulus) and yield stress.
