Abstract. The results of experimental studies of the efficiency of manufacturing polymer foundry models by the FDM method are presented. Rational consumables for 3D-printing are revealed. The optimal values of the shrinkage value of the 3D-model during printing and the parameters of the 3D-printer operation mode are revealed. It has been established that polymer casting molds are rationally manufactured by FDM printing, using ABS-plastic as a consumable, while making a correction to linear dimensions at the stage of creating a 3D-model to eliminate plastic shrinkage.
