Abstract: Additive Manufacturing termed by ASTM standard referred to in short as, the technology of fabricating a model based on creating a three-dimensional Computer-Aided Design structure. In the context of developing a product from digital data directly, widely involved various technologies. Amongst them, one being Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) which supervises the principle of AM, is widely known for developing a polymer-constructed sturdiest range of materials or parts are having operative mechanical properties. Even though, the main problem exaggerates that, the quality of the output still denies due to which void parts are created from bubbles trapped leading to failure of parts under mechanical stresses. Since with 15% infill, stronger parts are estimated and their mechanical properties are studied. Since the work signifies the influence of 15% infill on mechanical properties in estimating stronger products by layered addition process. The experimental methodology is based on structural infill parameters determining goal in achieving and studying material mechanical properties.
