How to Design for 3D Printing with Direct Metal Laser Sintering (.PDF Download)

Additive manufacturing is a process that adds material, usually on a layer-to-layer basis, to make a 3D object based off the interpretation of 3D computer-aided-design (CAD) data. Additive manufacturing is also called 3D printing or rapid prototyping.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is an additive manufacturing method that builds prototype and production metal parts using a laser to selectively fuse a fine metal powder.

Traditional manufacturing techniques remove material
