In this analysis, a Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is used to contribute within machine elements manufacturing by using aluminium base alloys. It shows the ability to produce hybrid components which composite of different parts with different materials, and lightweight components with internal structure. An investigation to the mechanical and structural properties of specimens is made. Then a new concept to build one solid, hollow body by using SLM is introduced. Two applications are presented to show the ability to integrate functions within components.
