Metallic Materials Prepared by Selective Laser Melting: Part Orientation Issue


Article Preview

This paper shows part orientation issue in the process of Selective Laser Melting (SLM) at four examples of metallic materials (Fe, stainless steel 316L, TiAl6V4 alloy and AlSi11Mg alloy). Horizontally and vertically oriented samples differ in their mechanical properties, especially in plasticity. The causes of these differences are related to a thermal history, microstructural features and porosity. Depending on a particular material, individual effects are manifested under different extents.
