Additive manufacturing is a promising fabrication method for optical components used for illumination tasks . Here we present different design approaches for 3D printed light pipes in order to generate a thin laser line, which is needed for optical metrology . Additionally we briefly discuss the needed rework of the printed l ight pipes and the propagation of light within the light pipes.
