Abstract

This study investigates the capabilities of two Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes, ProJet 5500X and EnvisionTec Aureus, to fabricate small components with mezzo features (dimensions below 1mm). Benchmark parts for accuracy and strength evaluation have been designed, manufactured and tested. The results demonstrate the achievable dimensional and geometric accuracy, surface finish, tensile and flexural strength of parts made by these two high resolution processes. Their capabilities and limitations in fabrication of small parts with mezzo features have been discussed. This investigation provides metrics for the selection of the most appropriate AM process for a specific application.
