Selective laser sintering, or SLS, produces parts by using a laser to melt and fuse powdered polymers. SLS materials are durable, flexible and heat resistant, making SLS great for functional prototypes. Demanding applications such as snap fits and living hinges are easily achievable with SLS materials. Because SLS produces parts with a smooth surface finish, using no support structures, it is ideal for cosmetic prototypes with complex geometry.

SLS Features

sls 3d printed case

Standard Polymers

SLS uses standard production materials which allows your prototype to have the same properties as your manufactured parts.
