Over the previous two decades, microfabrication technologies have been developed due to the high demand in micro-sized components. Current additive manufacturing (AM) technologies have already made adequate progress in producing small scale components, but the fabrication of micro parts can introduce further challenges. A comparative study between 316L and 17-4PH stainless steel alloys for both additive and micro-additive manufactured (micro-AM) components was conducted to examine the resulting microstructure and mechanical performance. Components were produced via binder jet, selective laser melting, and print & sinter. Microstructural characterization of AM and micro-AM components was investigated using light optical (LOM) and scanning electron (SEM) microscopy. Consideration was taken for mechanical properties at scale and the resulting surface quality of micro-AM components with the use of micro-indentation and tensile measurements.
