This paper presents the melt flow rate (MFR) of an acrylonitrile butadiene styrene ABS-Copper filament wire for Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) machine. In this study, the effect MFR of 70 % copper filled in 30 % ABS filament material was investigated experimentally based on the melting temperature, feed rate and different size of FDM nozzle diameter. The melt flow index (MFI) and mechanical properties of ABS-Copper filament through the injection molding machine and Melt Flow Indexer Machine was investigated in the experimental for highest value of the mechanical properties and MFI. Based on the result obtained, it was found that, increment of 75% copper filled in ABS filament material in weight percentage (wt. %) increase the MFR, velocity and length of PMC wire filament material. It can be conclude that, highest temperature and federate is needed to extrude polymer matrix composite (PMC) filament compared to ABS polymer filament material in FDM machine.
