SLS Printing

SLA Printing

SLS 3D Printing

Selective Laser Sintering is an industrial grade 3D printing process. This method is ideal for creating durable, accurate, and high performance prints. Furthermore, this method can be used to produce detailed parts with complex geometry. As a result it is ideal for a wide range of professional manufacturing applications.

Advantages

SLS prints are extremely accurate representations of 3D CAD data. Prints are Isotropic with chemical resistance. Benefits include drastic overhangs, moving parts, interlocking pieces, and interior mechanisms. 

Prints can be either rigid or flexible. In either case they are extremely durable. We created these 3D printed sneakers entirely out of flexible material.

Disadvantages

SLS 3D prints have a porous surface. For prints requiring an extremely smooth finish, SLA may be a better option.

How it works

SLS 3D printing uses high powered lasers to heat and fuse thin layers of powder. This process separates sintered and unsintered areas of material on a build plate within the machine. With each layer fresh material is introduced and the process is repeated. The fused material is built up into finished 3D prints. The unused material acts as a support. After cooling, any unused material can be brushed off the print.
