Additive manufacturing, in spite of its ever wider application range, is still plagued by issues ranging from accuracy to surface finish. In this study, to address the latter issue, the feasibility of using Copper(II)Oxide powder with a polymer binder deposited through a Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing technique is explored. In particular, the post processing of the green components through a newly developed furnace sintering process is investigated. The properties of the generated test samples were assessed by using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), surface roughness and optical analysis methods in addition to properties of the sintered samples through Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometry (EDS).
