Abstract: Rapid prototyping (RP) can be defined as a group of techniques used to fabricate a part or assembly using three dimensional (3D) computer aided design (CAD) data by stacking and bonding two and a half dimensional (21/2D) layers in a given direction. With the advent of first RP machine in mid 80’s, it has gained attention of manufacturing industries due to advantages like freeform fabrication, no tooling requirement and fast and simple operations. Irrespective of these advantages, the resulting parts have weak mechanical strength, poor dimensional accuracy and surface finish. However, methods have been proposed to improve dimensional accuracy and mechanical strength [3, 4] simply through controlling of process related variables. In addition to strength and dimensional integrity, a good surface finish is also an important characteristic for functional requirement of RP parts. Present work highlights on modelling aspects of fused deposition modelling (FDM) process for surface fini...
