Recently, Additive Manufacturing (AM) technique is widely recognized by engineering sectors for its novel capability to manufacture components directly from a Computer-Aided Model (CAM). Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is an upcoming modernization among different AM techniques. DMLS is one of the AM techniques attuned to produce the three-dimensional components or expensive component by layer-by-layer powder deposition and laser sintering avoiding utilization of any alternative additional processes. Current research work focus on fabricating an Al-Si-10Mg aluminium alloy by DMLS process which is studied for the influence of specimen geometry, surface finish and build orientation on the mechanical strength. The importance of the sample studied for the geometry and surface finish is quite necessary specifically for dynamic applications.
