What is Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)?

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a 3D printing process used in producing parts for end-use, low volume production, and rapid prototyping. Products that are manufactured using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) are highly accurate and durable.

is an additive manufacturing process which fuses small particles of metal, plastic, ceramic or glass powders into a 3D object. SLS technology relies on high power lasers such as a carbon dioxide laser to selectively fuse the powdered material and create the 3D object.
