Surface morphology of fractured tensile specimens from pure polymer (left) and carbon fiber reinforced polymer (right) produced by FDM. The composite material exhibits complex fracture mechanisms, arising from the geometrical characteristics of the 3D printed structure, processing conditions and the interactions between the reinforcing fibers and polymer matrix.
