3D printing technology has a very wide range of applications in various fields, when rapid manufacturing and chain stability are required in production; 3D printing technology fulfil both conditions. However, limited by printer specifications, medium to large components must be printed in sections. For the quality of the products it is sometimes necessary to adjust the angle of placement of the model, these will affect the time it takes to print the model. In this paper, we will investigate the intricate interplay between support mass and printing time, tilt angle and support mass, as well as tilt angle and forming time, utilizing two distinct 3D printing technologies: FDM and UV-Curing. Furthermore, we aim to compile comprehensive data tables and line graphs to provide a visual representation of our findings. This paper hope to provide insights into the further development of 3D printing for the manufacture of medium to large parts and promote their wider application and research in various fields.
