Variation of Surface Topography in Laser Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing of Nickel Super Alloy 625



Jason C. Fox


This document provides details on the files available for download in the dataset "Variation of Surface Texture in Laser Powder Bed Fusion of Nickel Super Alloy 625." The following sections provide details on the experiments, methods, and data files. The experiment detailed in this document methodically varies part position and surface orientation relative to the build plate and relative to the recoater blade. This dataset provides surface height data for analysis and development of correlations by the greater research
