Custom SLS Prototypes in Chicago

The SLS process melts a powdered resin with a laser and builds the parts layer by layer. The nylon powder options available allow for durability, flexibility, and functionality. Selective Laser Sintering is great for hollow parts and unlike other additive processes, SLS parts build free of support. The resin itself becomes a natural support and any excess powder is shaken out of the interior.

SLS prototypes perform well in real world testing and applications. This is the perfect process for additive manufacturing applications and allows you to produce end use parts. SLS has a wide range of finishes, coatings, and materials available. There are numerous benefits to SLS prototypes in Chicago including:

  • Fast quote
  • Hollow Prototypes (bottles or tanks)
  • Multiple finishes available
  • Special additive coating for fuel tank applications
  • Ideal for snap fits, living hinges, or high heat applications
  • Multiple filled and unfilled nylon materials available
