3D Printing SLS Prototype
The principle of 3D printing SLS prototype is stacking. With computer-assisted design and fabrication, the solid powder will be made into 3D parts, and without the limitation of the size and structure. The whole process needs no tools or jigs. As long as the tray is big enough, one person can operate multiple printers, and print multiple parts each time, reducing the cycle time of prototype manufacturing.
Nylon is the main material of 3D printing SLS prototype. It is high-energetic laser sintering by layering. The advantage is the high strength, but the disadvantage is the low precision and rough surface. Only the manual polish, can the prototype be beautiful. Besides, the precision can be controlled between ±0.2mm.
3D printing SLS prototype is a quick way of making plastic prototype. The raw material is fine powder. The plastic powder will be sintered into solid material by laser with program, and layer by layer, forming the ultimate prototype. The prototype will be made on the platform. By the precise control of the distance of the platform with the help of program, each layer of powder will be laid evenly.
3D Printing SLS prototype is mainly used in exhibition, providing the contour of product. This kind of prototype has no special requirement on size or precision, mainly used for sculpture, jewelry, artware, commodity and model of architecture.
