Advances in additive manufacturing are enabling the design and production of part geometries that have previously been unrealistic and/or economically infeasible. Direct metal laser sintering, in particular, is an additive manufacturing method that is capable of producing parts from high strength and temperature resistant materials including the nickel-based superalloy, Inconel 718, which is the material used in this thesis.
