This study is the first study on the compressive and tensile stress-strain revealing the deformation anisotropy among laser powder bed fusion NiTi parts fabricated with the same process conditions. We investigated the effects of building orientation on the microstructure and the resulting shape memory properties. To this end, three orientations were selected, namely 0, 45, and 90-degree, measured from the build plate and fabricated with the same process parameters. A strong (001) texture was formed along the building direction for all of the samples; a different texture could however be observed along the loading direction (LD). Samples fabricated with 45-degree showed a texture of (110) along the LD, as confirmed through X-ray diffraction and backscattered diffraction while 0 and 90 samples still had the (001) texture along with the LD. These texture variations created anisotropic compression-tension behaviors with deformation patterns consistent with single crystals. The (001) -textured parts showed higher strength and lower transformation strain (2.87% @ 200 MPa in tension for 0 ͦ) while the (110) samples showed higher transformation strain at lower stresses (5.31% @ 150 MPa in tension for 45 ͦ).
