The aim of this work is to characterize samples of the 2017 aluminum alloy obtained by the additive manufacture methods of Powder Bed Fusion and Directed Energy Deposition. The samples will be characterized by density measurements, X-ray diffraction, optical and scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry.
