SLS 3D Printing – Highlights

For industrial applications, SLS 3D Printing is the most common additive manufacturing technology. But it is also widely used across many different rapid manufacturing projects. If you are new to SLS 3D Printing here are the quick highlights to help you determine if SLS 3D Printing is the right technology for your next rapid prototype or low-volume manufacturing project.

1. Nylon is the most common material for SLS 3D Printed parts. Nylon is strong, flexible and lightweight.

2. Nylon is widely used in the manufacturing industry offering great properties like resistance to water, dirt, UV light, chemicals, heat and impact.

3. When comparing SLS to SLA and FDM, SLS is at the upper end of printing resolution, accuracy, throughput, and surface finish. Although for a truly smooth surface finish some hand sanding or another post process to achieve a truly smooth surface finish will be required.

4. SLS handles complex designs better than any other additive manufacturing technology.

5. SLS is great for prototyping in general, functional prototypes specifically, low-volume production, and custom manufacturing.

6. SLS parts are very strong and offer complete design freedom.

7. When it comes to finishing SLS 3D Printed parts, sanding, painting, etc, then it is best to have HLH print your parts for you as we have multiple surface finishing services in-house 😃😃
