In recent AM method is broadly accepted by engineering divisions because of its innovative competence to manufacture apparatuses and gears from CAM (computer aided model). Direct Metal Laser Sintering or (DMLS) process is a forthcoming modernization amongst different Additive manufacturing practices. DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) is an Additive Manufacturing practice which attuned for producing the three-dimensional (3D) components or expensive components in a layer-by-layer powder deposition and laser sintering simultaneously avoiding the exploitation of various other alternative addition processes. Our present research concentrates on fabricating an AA 6061 aluminium alloy with 2 wt% graphene composite using the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process which gets studied for the effect of specimen's surface finish, 3d geometry, and graphene orientation on the mechanical-strength. The significance of the sample/model gets studied for surface finish and the geometry which is quite essential precisely for dynamic type space exploration structural applications.
