AB - Additive manufacturing methods such as laser powder bed fusion (PBF) can produce micro-lattice structures which consist of ‘micro-struts’, which have properties that differ from the bulk metal and that can vary depending on the orientation of the strut to the build direction (the strut build angle). Characterising these mechanical and morphological changes would help explain macro-scale lattice behaviour. Individual stainless steel (SS316L) and titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) laser PBF struts were built at 20°, 40°, 70° and 90° to the build platform, with 3 designed diameters and tested in uniaxial tension (n = 5). Micro-CT was used to quantify changes in surface roughness, eccentricity and cross-section. Average elastic modulus was 61.5 GPa and 37.5 GPa for SS316L and Ti6Al4V respectively, less than the bulk material. Yield strength was uniform over build angle for SS316L, but for Ti6Al4V varied from 40% to 98% of the bulk value from 20° to 90° build angles. All lower angle struts had worse morphology, with higher roughness and less circular cross-sections. These data should help inform micro-lattice design, especially in safety critical applications where lower mechanical performance must be compensated for.
