Abstract

Adding new chemicals, especially nanomaterials, to 3D printing filaments is a promising method for creating unique composite structures. As a result of its adaptability in a wide variety of technical sectors, including mechanical engineering, sensor development, and bioengineering, interest in the prospective uses of Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) is consistently on the rise. This 2D carbon nanomaterial has unique properties that may be used with 3D printing to provide novel approaches to the design and manufacture of one-of-a-kind components. This research demonstrates a simple approach to coating a commercial polymeric filament with Carbon Nanotubes, which Fused Deposition Modeling may then employ to create a testing structure. Experimental characterization was carried out to examine the presence, function, and distribution of CNT on the polymer surface to ascertain the process’s dependability.
