The need of manufacturing of prototype of any newly designed components has significant importance for obtaining realistic model since evolution of engineering. The ability to select the optimal orientation of build-up is one of the critical factors since it affects the part quality, build time, and part cost. It is found from the experimental results that the FDM process gives lowest surface roughness across the length is obtained for specimens built with orientation along YZ0, 100% infill and at 0.30 mm layer thickness. The sand paper polishing method yielded an immense improvement in the surface finish of the specimen. Increase in productivity i.e reduce in production time is obtained at 0.30 mm layer thickness, 20% infill at XY0 orientation.
