Material Spec Sheet
Selective Laser Melting creates objects from thin layers of powdered material by selectively melting it using a high power laser. The process takes place in a low oxygen environment in order to reduce thermal stresses and to prevent warping.
Industrial metals are best used for high-tech, low-volume use cases from prototyping to creating end-use parts. Metal 3D prints are comparable to traditionally manufactured parts in terms of chemical composition, mechanical properties (static and fatigue) as well as microstructure.
Once the printing is done, the extra powder that was not bound, and is not part of your design, is removed. Your part is now solid metal, and after the flutes are manually removed, it is tumbled and polished to produce a smooth finish.
