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 […]

How Close Are We to Full Color 3D Printing?

How Close Are We to Full Color 3D Printing?

Full color 3D printing is the holy grail of 3D printing. To be able to 3D print an object in any color whatsoever with clear definition and no bleed would really make prototyping with 3D printing more valuable. If prototypes coming off the printer would look almost exactly like the final object, then the technology […]
