Low Cost Selective Laser Sintering: The Innovator's Dilemma in Powder?

Low Cost Selective Laser Sintering: The Innovator's Dilemma in Powder?

Selective Laser Sintering is also called powder bed fusion and SLS. The SLS process sees a bed of polymer powder selectively sintered by a laser. A new layer is applied and this is then also hardened with unsintered powder acting as a support. Dominated by EOS Gmbh, SLS is probably the most high volume, high […]

Cooksongold and Boltenstern Introduce the 3D Printed Gold and Platinum Embrace Jewelry Collection

What we call 3D printed jewelry typically isn’t directly 3D printed – it’s made, like most metal jewelry, using investment casting. It’s the molds that are 3D printed. But when Cooksongold talks about 3D printed jewelry, there are no molds involved – pieces produced using their 3D printers are 3D printed directly, using Direct Metal Laser […]
