Additive manufacturing by Selective Laser Melting of metals is attracting substantial attention, due to its advantages, such as short-time production of customized structures. This technique is useful for building complex components using a metallic pre-alloyed powder. One of the most used materials in AMSLM is AlSi10Mg powder. Additively manufactured AlSi10Mg may be used as a structural material and it static mechanical properties were widely investigated. Properties in the strain rates of 5×102–1.6×103 s-1 and at higher strain rates of 5×103 –105 s-1 have been also reported. The aim of this study is investigation of dynamic properties in the 7×102–8×103 s-1 strain rate range, using the split Hopkinson pressure bar technique. It was found that the dynamic properties at strain-rates of 1×103–3×103 s-1 depend on a build direction and affected by heat treatment. At higher and lower strain-rates the effect of build direction is limited. The anisotropic nature of the material was determined by the ellipticity of samples after the SHPB test. No strain rate sensitivity was observed.
