Recently, FDM printers have taken their place in many places from workplaces to homes. Polymer-based filaments are used in these printers. The wide variety of polymers also increases the variety of products that can be used in FDM printers. For this reason, many studies are carried out in this field to ensure the production of parts with better mechanical properties, better surface quality and to use 3D printing capabilities in specific applications. In this study, the effect of SiO2 composition on PLA-based filaments on the mechanical properties of the materials produced using these filaments was investigated. SiO2 reinforced PLA filaments are produced with 10, 20 and 30 wt% SiO2 reinforcement. Tensile specimens with 100% fill rate and grid fill shape were produced from this composite filament. The test results showed that SiO2 reinforcement decreased the yield and tensile strength values ​​and elastic modulus of the materials, but increased the toughness values.
