Perspectives of laser synthesis of functional graded materials (FGM) with controlled pores and chemical mixture are discussed. Filter elements from metal-polymer powder compositions were fabricated by the selective laser sintering method. It was shown, that physical properties of the composted 3D part can change from layer to layer and have no nature analogy. In particular, permeability and porosity coefficients of synthesized 3D parts were determined depending on laser influence parameters and a polymer quantify. Wide opportunities of preliminary computer modelling of the porous space structure, the forecast filtration characteristics are discussed.
