This work is focused on the experimental investigations for wear properties of rapid tooling with nano scale fillers for grinding applications. The rapid tooling has been prepared by using composite material feed stock filament (consisting of Nylon6 as a binder, reinforced with biocompatible nano scaled Al2O3 particles on fused deposition modeling (FDM) for the development of grinding wheel having customized wear resistant properties. A comparative study has been conducted under dry sliding conditions in order to understand the tribological characteristics of FDM prints of composite material and commercially used acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) material. This study also highlights the various wear mechanisms (such as adhesive, fatigue and abrasive) encountered with newly prepared composite material while grinding. The FDM printed parts of proposed composite material feedstock filament are more suitable for grinding applications especially in clinical dentistry.
