Additive manufacturing and in particular 3D powder bed printing of metal alloys allows for builds of various shapes and complexities far beyond what is possible with traditional manufacturing processes. The ability to adjust the fabrication process to the specifications of the design is a revolution from current manufacturing methods, where the fabrication process is chosen and the design is adjusted to fit that process. A major limitations of additive manufacturing comes from the fact that most finite element-based design assumes homogenous and isotropic material properties, which is not the case for additive builds. In this study, super-alloys specimens (“X”, “Y” and “T” elements) containing thin-walled ligaments and junctions were printed and tested to elucidate the effects of geometry and location specific properties on the mechanical response of additively manufactured components.
