This study investigates the important, rapidly emerging, latest manufacturing technology which is revolutionising the manufacturing industries. Additive manufacturing (AM), also referred to as 3D printing, in comparison to traditional subtracting manufacturing techniques, involves manufacturing a part by depositing material layer by layer until the final product is achieved. Once the 316L stainless steel part is printed, microstructural crystal grain analysis of the part will be carried out on the longitudinal and latitudinal cross-sectional surfaces with varying heights, and comparing the results obtained with that of conventional manufacturing methods being currently used.
