The selective laser sintering (SLS) process has attracted increasing interest as an additive manufacturing technique for metallic powder. In this study, molecular dynamics simulation is used to simulate SLS process and calculate mechanical properties of sintered aluminum and iron nanoparticles. With the assistance of discrete element method, various initial particle configurations that are more natural, as well as particle sizes and orientations are investigated and linked with the microstructures and mechanical properties of the sintered materials.
