What is the density of 3D print components?

For the material aluminum (AlSi10Mg) the following values were determined after a test by the hydrostatic buoyancy principle:

  • 3D-printed and unprocessed: density approximately between 98.50% and 98.70%  
  • 3D printing and milled finishing:   Density between about 98.97% and 99.26% 

 

These values serve as a guide. For each component, different influencing factors must be considered and taken into account in production.
