Rapid 3D’s SLS 3D printing technique fuses plastic powder particles together with a laser to build parts layer by layer. This powder bed technology rivals injection moulding strength and mechanical properties for short production runs of parts. SLS technology in 3D Printing Services has hardly any printing limitations, giving freedom to design and print complex geometries.
SLS is a powder bed fusion 3D printing technology. It uses a CO2 laser to fuse tiny bits of nylon powder, tracing the geometry of digitally sliced CAD models layer by layer, after which a re-coater deposits a new layer of powder and the build platform moves down one layer in height. The process is then repeated until the parts are complete.
