Process SLS - Selective laser sintering
SLS produces part from plastic, wax, or metal powders. Advantages include the use of industrial plastic types.

In SLS, a CNC-controlled laser beam sinters a pattern in the surface of a powder bed. The hardened layer is lowered, a new layer of powder is spread, and the process is repeated.

Dimensions are up to 500 * 500 * 500 mm, but larger parts can be made.
