Industrial hemp fibers as reinforcing agents in 3D-printing filament composites: poster
This research project studies mechanical and chemical properties of PLA plastic 3D-printing filament composites reinforced with industrial hemp (Cannabis Sativa L.) fibers. The aim is to investigate the use of hemp fibers as an economically advantageous replacement to cellulosic fibers from wood. Namely, hemp is less expensive than wood and it is more environmentally friendly. 3D printing (Fused Filament Fabrication – FFF) is a novel prototyping and manufacturing process based on material addition. Hemp is investigated as a possible replacement for wood cellulosic fibers as filler material in ...
