Abstract: The knowledge of 3D printing material used in 3D printing technique is so abundant. Even though there are many critical issues in practical applications. This paper reports the mechanical properties of Environmental friendly Bio composites. This composite material is intended to be used as a replacement for the current 3D printing material. The composite was prepared in compression molding technique under 150 kg/cm2 pressure. The composite consists of Poly Hydroxy Butyrate co Valerate (PHBV) and Sansevieria Roxburghiana. The tensile strength of the given specimen is found to be increased by the change in the volume fraction of fibers. Initially composite plates composed of both PHBV and Sansevieria Roxburghiana are prepared with different weight percentage of PHBV and different lengths of fiber such as 20mm, 30mm, 40mm and 50mm.
