Selective laser sintering (SLS) is an additive manufacturing technique that uses a high power laser to fuse small particles of plastic or metal into a mass that has a desired 3-dimensional shape. The laser selectively fuses powdered material by scanning cross-sections generated from a CAD file or scan data on the surface of a powder bed. After each cross-section is scanned, the powder bed is lowered by one layer thickness, a new layer of material is applied on top, and the process is repeated until the part is completed.


Key SLS Benefits:



  • Strong Parts made from a variety of plastics
  • Variety of materials: rigid and flexible plastics
  • High stress and high heat applications
  • Can be finished for use as presentation models
  • Dimensional accuracy within thousandths of an inch
  • Just a few days for delivery
