Among basic problems associated with additive manufacturing of metal objects by accretion of moltenmetal droplets is a number of questions of fluid-mechanical character. Authors concentrate attention on two alternative designs of droplets generation: one using centrifugal force and the other with liquid surface deformed electrostatically into a cone producing the droplets at its tip.
