This paper presents the melt flow rate (MFR) of an ABS-Copper filament wire for Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) machine. In this study, the effect MFR of 70% copper tilled in 30% ABS filament material by weight percentage(wt %) was investigated experimentally based on the melting temperature and feedrate with different of the nozzle diameter through the FDM heated liquefied head. The mechanical properties of ABS-Copper filament through the injection molding machine and Melt Flow Rate by the FDM liquefied head was investigated in experimental for the mechanical properties and MFR. Based on the result obtained, it was found that increment of 75% copper filled in ABS filament material in weight percentage (wt.%) increase the mechanical properties and MFR (velocity and length) of PMC wire filament material through the FDM. It can be observed that, highest temperature and federate is needed to extrude polymer matrlx composite (PMC) filament compared to ABS polymer filament material in FDM machine
