    Abstract

    In this research, the post-processing steps and their importance is highlighted for 3D printed microwave components. The components created so far include various antennae and a waveguide fabricated with Titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V), using the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technique. The variations in performance after each postprocessing step on the surface morphology and the microstructural surface roughness were measured using a Vector Network Analyser (VNA), Optical Microscopy (OM) and White Light Interferometry (WLI).
