3D-printing is an emerging technology that challenged wrought counterparts by one-step manufacturing for complicated biological devices. However, the material properties and surface features due to manufacturing parameters play an important role on the corrosion behaviour and influence the toxicity of the material as an implant. In this paper, the improvement of pitting potential was observed by electrochemical experiments as the result of grain refinement of DMLS 316
