The article is focused on the research of the influence of different blasting means on the surface of the titanium alloy Ti6Al4V, which was made by the sintering technology of layered metal powders (DMLS) in terms of microgeometry. The resulting microgeometry values of the titanium alloy placed on the platform in different sectors. Individual sectors had different laser power settings. The blasting was carried out at a constant pressure of 6 bar. Samples were then subjected to roughness measurement by contact method in accordance with STN EN ISO 4287. Individual parameters were subsequently statistically evaluated. A 3D topography of roughness of individual blasted materials was made.
