This work presents an investigation into the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) of 24 carat gold (Au) powder with a mean particle size of 24μm. An SLM 100 system was used which is intended for production of highly detailed and intricate parts. Gold powder was tested for its properties such as tap density, Particle Size distribution (PSD) and reflectance etc. A suitable processing window was identified and gold cubes were produced using these parameters. Gold cubes were also checked for their internal porosity and mechanical properties.
