Industrial hemp fibers as reinforcing agents in 3D-printing filament composites: presentation
This paper addresses mechanical and chemical properties of various plastic 3D-printing filament composites reinforced with industrial hemp (Cannabis Sativa L.) fibers. Hemp fibers are considered an economically advantageous replacement to cellulosic fibers from wood. Namely, hemp is less expensive than wood and it is more environmentally friendly. 3D-printing (additive manufacturing or rapid prototyping) is a novel prototyping and manufacturing process based on material addition. The 3D-printing market is projected to reach $30.19 billion by 2022. Inexpensive 3D printers based on fused deposition ...
