Additive Manufacturing (AM) or “3D-Printing” is rapidly progressing from a prototyping aid to a qualified low-volume fabrication method for highly complex metallic parts. However, before critical or load bearing applications will see industry implementation, a better understanding of the effects of process variables and post-processing history on microstructure, particularly in regards to defect properties, is required. The authors’ work utilizing high energy synchrotron-based µXCT to investigate porosity in AM Ti-6Al-4V will be addressed, as well as developing work using in-situ high speed X-ray imaging to observe defect formation mechanisms in real time. Possible future coherent imaging needs of the AM community will also be addressed.
