The full range of uses for symmetry in material structuring by additive manufacturing (AM) processes has not yet been discovered in terms of its potential in driving the performance of designed parts. According to an optimized selection of AM process parameters for a wide variety of materials, we can expect to see tremendous effect on the mechanical, thermal and transfer properties . Each of the AM process has a different way in tuning the material structure according to discontinuities that are created during the process of layer-by-layer building. This Special Issue focuses on the link between the material symmetry / asymmetry generated by AM processes and the achieved performance. This Special Issue welcome both numerical and experimental technical papers, as well as review contributions. We hope that this Issue will provide an opportunity to share the most recent advances in AM and contribute to further unveiling the potential of AM processes in order to tune the material performance at scales of different length while understanding the implications of material symmetry in AM processes.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
