The purpose of the project is to study how the mechanical properties of cellular structures made by Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) change depending on the number of unit cells and the cell geometry. Specimens with three geometries of regular hexagon, square, and equilateral triangle were produced by FDM. The number of cells was varied systematically in each of the three geometries. The samples were tested for compressive strength. The specimens were laser-scanned to determine the actual dimensions, and those values were used in calculations to reduce the dimensional errors.
