Many parts for automobiles and home electric appliances are made of steel sheets. In sheet metal forming processes, the knowledge of technological values, such as yield or tensile strength and r-value, enables a more precise control of processes and results in many benefits such as an improvement in yield efficiency in machining processes and a decrease in loss of material. The current paper shows the possibility of the determination of all considered properties with the use of the Micro-Tensile Test (M-TT) technique. Previously developed and verified testing procedure of M-TTs for bulk materials is applied here for DC01 steel sheet characterization. To assess the applicability of M-TT for sheet characterization, standard and MTT tests were performed in 3 orientations: 0°, 45° and 90°. Moreover, for thickness influence evaluation, micro-specimens were machined with several different thicknesses.Keywords: Micro-Tensile Test, Digital Image Correlation (DIC), anisotropy, r-value
