Additive Manufacturing (AM) as a manufacturing process is increasingly implemented in manufacturing and is thus subjected to the high demands of industry. With the industrialization of AM technologies follows demands regarding not only dimensions and tolerances, but also mechanical properties, processing time and cost. The multi-objective optimization problems arising from AM is just another venue where Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) are applied. This paper attempts to provide an overview of the current role of EAs in AM in order to make a discussion on the future prospects of EAs in the industry.
