Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
· Impact and pressure resistant
· Food safe material that doesn't leach
· Structurally sound
· Large bed allows for low-volume runs of small parts without tooling
· Specialty materials available for a variety of applications
SLS Design Guidelines
Please note that these are are guidelines, not hard-and-fast rules. Follow these, and you should be in pretty good shape. We'll let you know if we see any problems with your design.
|Maximum Part Size||27.6 x 15 x 22.9*||700 x 380 x 580*|
|Expected Tolerance||+/- 0.3%**||+/- 0.3%**|
|Minimum Supported Wall Thickness||0.030||0.75|
|Minimum Unsupported Wall Thickness||0.030||0.75|
|Minimum Supported Bosses||0.030||0.75|
|Minimum Unsupported Bosses||0.040||1.00|
|Minimum Embossed Detail (Height and Width)||0.020||0.50|
|Minimum Engraved Detail (Height and Width)||0.020||0.50|

*Build volume is up to 27.6 x 15 x 22.9 inches. Larger models can be made in sections and pieced together after printing.
**Large SLS parts can be prone to warp, which explains the scaling tolerance. Minimum tolerances are +/- 0.010.
