SLS uses a laser to fuse particles of plastic powder together building parts layer by layer. This powder bed technology rivals injection moulding strength and mechanical properties for short production runs of parts.
SLS technology has hardly any printing limitations giving freedom to design and print complex geometries.
SLS is a powder bed Fusion 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.
