An example of samples with a cellular architecture, obtained by selective laser melting,
is used to study the influence of the building direction of cellular objects on the characteristics of fracture under cyclic loading. The origin of their fracture has been revealed. The mechanism providing increased fatigue fracture resistance of objects which, along with the cellular structure, have anisotropy of properties due to the technological features of their production has been determined.

Acknowledgments: This work was partially supported within the framework of the event “Creation and Func-tioning of a Network of International Scientific and Methodological Centers for the Expansion of the Best International Practices of Training, Retraining, and Internship of Advanced Digital Economy Personnel in the Fields of Mathematics, Informatics, and Technology” (Agreement No. 075-15-2019- 1907 dated 09.12.2019) and in accordance with the research plan for the IES UB RAS, theme AAAA-A18-118020790145-0. The equipment installed in the Plastometriya collective use center, IES UB RAS, was used in the experimental investigation.

Keywords: selective laser melting, cellular structures, high-cycle fatigue, fracture
