he additive manufactured parts can be made by the use of suitable layer thicknesses of the polymer in order to respect the requirements of a refined geometry and of a surface appearance of the physical object that should be as similar as possible to the original CAD model. An other important variable is the digital datum that can represent a key variable of the realization procedure. The methodology proposed and followed in the present investigation got the objective to get a physical model, through the information obtained by a 3D scanning device, taking into consideration not only the digital treatment but also the building direction to guide the FDM layer deposition in order to realize the required surface appearance. The profiles of the specimen in the digital environment were compared to each other before realizing. The physical object obtained after digital treatment was similar to the one obtained by the original CAD.
