Paper Abstract

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is an emerging additive manufacturing technology that has great potential to change the way parts are manufactured. DMLS is ideal when trying to achieve complex geometries, lightweight metal parts, or reduced components. This presentation compares flawed versus optimized geometry, discusses part design considerations, and explores secondary operation options to keep in mind when designing for DMLS.
