Stress Strain Curve

This stress strain curve was created with the help of the materials testing lab here at McMaster University in JHE. Tensile tests were performed on samples 3D printed with 2 perimeters, 3 top & bottom layers, and 20% infill. As these results are unique to these parameters, only use the stress strain chart to compare materials. We cannot guarantee that your part will have the same properties.
