Title: The 316L steel SLM 3D printing process and the fabricated material physical properties.

Abstract: One of the techniques of additive manufacturing is the SLM (Selective Laser Melting) technology. In this method, an object is created by selectively fusing thin layers of powder using a scanning laser beam according to CAD data of the part. SLM in known since the ‘90s and the recent efforts have improved this technique considerably, but still many problems handicapping the successful fabrication of high-quality metal parts with desired microstructures and properties do exist. Physical phenomena during the process of 3D printed parts will be reviewed. The most important physical parameters of the 3D printed metal models will be discussed. The future goals of my research will be defined.
