In the present work, mechanical, rheological and thermal investigations for biocompatible feedstock filament wire (comprising of polyvinyl chloride and polypropylene and hydroxyapatite particles) have been conducted. The feedstock filament wire has been prepared (in-house) by twin-screw extrusion for commercial fused deposition modeling. This study also highlights the combined optimization of various mechanical properties (like peak load, break load, Young’s modulus and shore hardness) of the feedstock filament. The results have been supported by thermal analysis based upon differential scanning calorimetry, composite material morphology based upon scanning electron microscope analysis and rheological analysis based upon melt flow index.
