Abstract: A novel rapid prototyping technology incorporating a curved layer building style is being developed. The new process, based on fused deposition modeling (FDM), will be developed for improving the mechanical properties of layer manufactured structures. A short fibre reinforced composite is used to improve the mechanical properties of the FDM objects. A machine was built for efficient fabrication of shell structures using addition of curved layers. A detailed description will be made of the material properties and hardware for this new process. The development of the material for FDM filaments and accompanying process technology for curved layer fabrication will also be discussed. When making curved layer objects, high performance composites can improve the mechanical properties of FDM articles since the layers conform to the part geometry. Extensive experimentation has been done to find out the effect of fiber content in the filament and to see the effect of fibre orientation and distribution in the FDM parts.
