Abstract

An additive manufacturing method for forming a solid object 1 from powdered material is described. The solid object 1 has a passageway 4 formed therein with an opening 6a terminating at an outer surface of the solid object. The method includes the step of forming, at the same time as the remainder of the solid object 1, a removable component 8 that extends within at least part of the passageway 4. The removable component 8 is adapted so that, when it is subsequently removed from the passageway 4 by a user, it removes unprocessed powdered material to at least partially clear the passageway.
