Abstract. This paper is dedicated to the features of the processes of 3D printing of polymers with a high melting point such as PEEK, CarbonPEEK, ULTEM, PPSU using FDM (FFF) technology. The results of 3D printing with high-performance polymers using different conditions of the heated chamber are presented. Conclusions about the advantages of a heated chamber are made.
