Abstract: This paper attempts to expand the data for the thermal properties of materials used in 3D printing, which was considered limited before. This new data set may be useful in accelerating new developments and designs of heat exchangers. The effect of layer height and width are accounted for in the presented measurements. It is shown from varying these dimensions that as the layer height and width increase the thermal conductivity decreases.
