The objective of this research was to find the best combination of factor levels that minimized the surface roughness of prototyped samples from Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). Two sets of experiments were conducted for that purpose; a two-level three-factor full factorial experiment and a three-level two-factor full factorial experiment. The parameters chosen for this research were model temperature, layer thickness and part fill style. The results obtained from both experiments were compared and analyzed in order to determine the best combination of factors that minimized the surface roughness of the specimens. The significant factors, their interactions and the optimum setting are presented in this paper
