This paper shows some preliminary results of non-destructive tests performed by means of lock-in thermography on 3D printed items embedding optical fibres. The intention is to verify if lock-in thermography can be a valid means to identify the path of optical fibres which are buried inside a material and that cannot be identified with the naked eye. To this end feasibility tests have been carried out on some PLA samples manufactured by using the fused deposition modelling technique and by varying some key parameters.

Abstract

This paper shows some preliminary results of non-destructive tests performed by means of lock-in thermography on 3D printed items embedding optical fibres. The intention is to verify if lock-in thermography can be a valid means to identify the path of optical fibres which are buried inside a material and that cannot be identified with the naked eye. To this end feasibility tests have been carried out on some PLA samples manufactured by using the fused deposition modelling technique and by varying some key parameters.
