What Is SLS 3D Printing?
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is an industrial 3D printing process ideal for manufacturing end-use parts. In SLS 3D system, a laser selectively sinters polymer powder particles, fusing them together and building a part layer-by-layer. From SLS rapid prototyping to small-batch production, our SLS 3D printing facilities will allow you to produce highly accurate parts, with low cost and high quality comparable to injection molding.
SLS produces functional plastic parts with isotropic mechanical properties that can be used for detailed prototyping or end-use low-volume production.
Size of SLS 3D Printed Parts
The below table shows the size of the selective laser sintering SLS 3D printed parts we usually make. If you need a larger size, we can also help you achieve it.
|Max Build Size||300x300x300mm(11.8"x11.8"x11.8")|
|Standard Lead Time||6 business days|
|Dimensional Accuracy||± 0.3% with a lower limit of ± 0.3 mm (± 0.012”)|

SLS 3D Printing Design Guidelines
The following table summarizes the recommended and technically feasible values for the most common features encountered in 3D printed parts.
|Minimum Detail Size||0.25mm(0.010")|
|Minimum Hole Size||1.0mm(0.040")|
|Moving Parts||0.5mm(0.020")between moving surfaces|
|Assembly Clearance||0.4mm(0.016")between mating surfaces|
|Max Wall Thickness||20 mm (0.8''). Thicker parts must be hollowed with and at least two escape holes for powder removal with a min. diameter of 8 mm (0.3'').|

Surface Finishing Options for 3D Printing
Enhance the appearance of your 3D printed object with custom colors and finishes. Choose from a wide range of paints and coatings to achieve the desired look and feel.
Customization is Available
Gloss, semi-gloss, flat, metallic, textured
Achieve a smooth and glossy surface finish through mechanical polishing techniques. This process removes layer lines and imperfections, resulting in a refined appearance.
Plastics (PLA, ABS) and Resins
Smooth and Glossy
Apply a durable and protective powder coating to your 3D-printed part. This process involves electrostatic-ally applying a fine powder, which is then cured to create a tough and resistant finish.
Metals (Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Steel)
Standard, Metallic, and Custom Options.
Gloss or Semi-gloss
Utilize bead blasting to achieve a uniform and textured surface finish. This process involves propelling small abrasive particles at the surface of the object.
Metals (aluminum, steel, titanium) and Certain Plastics
Matte or Satin-like
