3D printing with the use of powdered metals is more and more commonly used, and its technologies as SLM, SLS or LMD, have developed strongly in the last few years. AM technologies allow to the production of complicated elements that are difficult to produce in another process. Additive manufacturing is increasingly used in the automotive, aerospace and biomedical industries. The most commonly used material in these areas is titanium. Titanium alloy Ti6Al4V is superlative for a machine elements requiring high strength. It is characterized by high mechanical properties, low density, high corrosion resistance and biocompatibility with human tissue. For this reason, this material is excellent for the production of biomedical implants The aim of the paper is to compare the properties of titanium alloy Ti6Al4V under static loading conditions for samples made by 3D printing and metallurgical method. On the basis of literature analysis, the results of experimental tests of samples made by use of additive manufacturing method in SLM technology were presented.
