Figure 6

SEM images of sintered samples. (a) Sample with one local beam pass, (b) Sample with four local beam passes, (c) Sample with eight local beam passes, (d) High magnification image of melted region – eight local beam passes, (e) High magnification image of sintered powder particles – eight local beam passes and (f) Section in the build direction – eight local beam passes with partially melted regions highlighted. Images (a) to (e) show the x-y plane while (f) shows the x-z plane (across the build layers).
