Abstract. This research focuses on the thermal characterization of 3D-printed parts obtained via Material Extrusion Additive Manufacturing using various process parameters. Differential Scanning Calorimetry and Thermal Conductivity measurements were used to evaluate the samples’ thermal characteristics and heat transport behavior. The experimental results showed a significant influence of some parameters, such as wall layer count and layer thickness, on the thermal behavior of the printed part.
