Selective laser sintering (polyamide)

Selective laser sintering is a rapid prototyping technology which fabricates models in a layer by layer fashion by exposing powdered polymer material to a CO2 laser. The laser draws a section of the model in the powder thus creating a single layer of sintered material. This process repeats until the model is finished.

With this technology it is possible to create any three-dimensional shapes including undercuts in a short amount of time. The fabricated models offer comparatively high mechanical and thermal properties.
