With the advent of 3D printing technology growing fast, it is important to determine the properties of objects made by this new process. Since some sensitive products, used in life-sustaining applications, are currently made by 3D printing, the reliability and durability of such components must be closely examined. Mechanical properties of metals may vary with the direction of heat transfer during solidification. This study presents the results of tensile tests, conducted at microscale on samples extracted from 3D printed metals. The implications of the variation of strength with solidification direction on the reliability of such metallic objects are discussed.
