Paper Abstract

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is an emerging additive manufacturing technology that has great potential to change the way parts are manufactured. Some benefits of DMLS, such as reduction of components, can lead to reduction of weight and quicker assembly times. Complex features and internal channels that are impossible to machine can also be created. In order to leverage this, it will be necessary to put aside some of the conventional manufacturing design rules, and look for ways to take advantage of DMLS.
