Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is one of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies applicable for producing complex geometries which are typically expensive or difficult to fabricate using conventional methods. This process has been extensively investigated experimentally for various metals and the fabrication process parameters have been established for different applications; however, fabricating 3D glass objects using SLM technology has remained a challenge so far although it could have many applications. This paper presents a summery on various experimental evaluations of a material database incorporating the build parameters of glass powder using the SLM process for jewelry applications.
