Technical Paper - Direct Metal Laser Sintering / Selective Laser Melting of Tungsten Powders

Tungsten, due to its high melting point and high thermal conductivity is difficult to process via DMLS.  The objective of this investigation was to understand the critical material (powder type) and process parameters (laser hatch spacing and scan speed) affecting the DMLS processing of tungsten.
