Abstract

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) uses a laser beam directed by a computer onto the surface of metallic or non-metallic powders to produce copies of solid or surface models rapidly. It is one of the few RP processes capable of producing durable and functional parts from a wide range of prototype materials that have physical properties similar to production materials. The functional prototypes are capable of withstanding high heat and chemical exposure and can be made to bend, snap or bolt together, and form flexible hinges.
