    Soft magnetic cores of electrical machines are typically made of electrical steel sheets by stacking them together. In this work, we explore the possibilities of producing these cores through additive manufacturing, namely by selective laser melting. Utilisation of additive manufacturing offers freedom, e.g. in the machine design and potentially results in significant material savings. The results that we have obtained are encouraging; the key characteristics of our specimens mainly meet the requirements of commercial electrical machines.
