3D printing of plastics

Selective laser sintering (SLS) is a professional additive manufacturing technology for 3D printing of plastics. With an SLS 3D printer, you can create plastic parts based on data from CAD systems.

How does it work?

The SLS 3D printer uses a laser as an energy source that selectively melts powdered plastic material and fuses it into a 3D printed part. This technology is part of Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), one of the most advanced and reliable technologies in additive manufacturing 3D printing.

Based on the 3D data from the CAD model, the laser melts the plastic material at precisely predetermined locations in the powder bed of the additive manufacturing system. Once the melting process is complete, the build platform is lowered and a new layer of powder is added. This process is repeated layer by layer until the part is complete.


The 3D printer continues to spread the material layer by layer.


The laser precisely melts the desired shape in each layer.


The 3D printed part grows layer by layer.
