Rapid Prototyping - Selective Laser Sintering, SLS
 
After your design have been completed. The next we need to do is making prototypes. WEMADE have different advices for you about making prototypes according to different materials needed in your products. Here is a SLS product we made for a customer.
 
The SLS process starts with creation of computer-aided design (CAD) file, which then needs to be converted to .stl format by special software(we can do this job for you ). The material to print with might be anything from nylon, ceramics and glass to some metals like aluminum, steel or silver. Due to wide variety of materials that can be used with this type of 3d printer the technology is very popular for 3D printing customized products.
 
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a technique that uses laser as power source to form solid 3D objects. The main difference between SLS and SLA is that it uses powdered material in the vat instead of liquid resin as stereolithography does.
 
Unlike some other additive manufacturing processes, such as stereolithography (SLA) and fused deposition modeling (FDM), SLS doesn’t need to use any support structures as the object being printed is constantly surrounded by unsintered powder.
