Abstract: This article studied the titanium alloy, Ti6A14V, and its mechanical and thermal properties. The thermal properties (thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity) were obtained using a hot disk apparatus based on the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. The influence of temperature on thermal conductivity was also observed, and it was noted that the alloy produced by the Electron Beam Melting (EBM) method showed the highest values for thermal conductivity, regardless of temperature, and the alloy produced by the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) method showed the lowest thermal conductivity values.
