This article presents manufacturing of exemplary knee prostheses using selective laser melting (SLM) technology. All phases of design and production are considered, from acquisition of the STL build file to optimization of process parameters, printing and post-build heat treatments. Geometric differences are acquired and compared with a 3D scanner.
