© 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.Today, the additive manufacturing (AM) method is used in aerospace, defense, and biomedical fields due to its advantages. However, it is important to be able to control the production environment in these production methods. This study investigates the effects of the air control unit (ACU) in production with the fused deposition modeling (FDM) method on dimensional accuracy. Gyroid and body-centered cubic (BCC) porous structures were produced in an AC and non-AC environment. After production, the dimensional accuracy and surface quality of the porous structure structures were investigated. Significant surface defects were observed in the porous structure structures produced in a non-AC environment. Better quality surfaces were obtained in the productions carried out by providing AC. In addition, in the results obtained, it was observed that there was an average of 2% deviation in terms of dimensions in the productions carried out using the ACU and an average of 2.5% deviation in the productions without ACU.
