In previous videos, Dr. Natalie Rudolph talked about the inherent properties of the different feedstock materials for Additive Manufacturing (AM) like metals, thermoplastics and thermosets. The focus is now on the process parameters and the properties of the starting material including how these affect the properties of the final parts and components.
This week’s topic: Impact factors of AM printed parts
- General influencing factors on the properties of AM components: Machine & technology, feedstock, processing and further processing of printed part
- Influencing factors on and of feedstock materials of polymer powder bed fusion

Learn about the process principle of the Powder Bed Fusion processes! We go into detail regarding the different tradenames of the Additive Manufacturing technology and how the names can be misleading regarding the process, e.g., calling it laser SinteringSintering is a production process for forming a mechanically strong body out of a ceramic or metallic powder. sintering when it is a melt-based process in reality.
