This study presents a thorough literature review on the powder-bed laser additive manufacturing processes such as selective laser melting (SLM) of Inconel 718 parts. The paper first introduces the general aspects of powder-bed laser additive manufacturing and then discusses the unique characteristics and advantages of SLM. Moreover, the bulk of this study includes extensive discussions of microstructures and mechanical properties, together with the application ranges, of Inconel 718 parts fabricated by SLM.
