    Today, the additive manufacturing (AM) approach has led to profound changes in part and process design, enabling previously impossible material properties. With the freedom to create the material as components are built layer by layer, AM has permitted precise spatial control of the material properties in manufactured parts. In this work, an original approach is proposed to locally control component and process design and create intentionally weakened regions with designed fracture, which paves the way to tuneable mechanical properties. Tensile tests of specimens with embedded weakened area of various geometries are used to verify the feasibility of a-priori-designed fracture modes an...
