The field of additive manufacturing (AM) is at the forefront of technology of research and has enormous potential for use in the automotive, aerospace, and civil engineering industries. Three-dimensional (3D) printing, one of the most well-known AM technologies, has recently attracted interest in academia as well as several industry sectors for the production and prototype of goods. The most well-known, often used, and quickly developing 3D printing method is called fused filament fabrication (FFF). It has a wide range of uses, from scientific research to home 3D printing and rapid prototyping to large-scale manufacturing. It has been noticed that the FFF technique can indeed be explored with the fabrication of multi-material lamination in order to improve a little bit the mechanical properties of FFF thermoplastic parts. In this thesis, investigation on the process and effects of mixing two well-known 3D printing materials, PLA and ABS have been done. Procedures for the experimental work consists of finding the proper setting of PLA deposited temperature and related process of preheated ABS. Further elaboration regarding the mechanical properties have been identified by conducting the flexural testing to the specimens. From the result, the specimens which consists of ABS-PLA combination both for preheated and non preheated ABS have higher strength and more stiffer than the pure ABS and PLA.
