  • A Powder Bed Based 3D Printing Process which uses a laser to sinter powder particles together, layer by layer
  • Products can be used as is (often done with plastics) although they will have a pourous nature (although this does allow for dye to permeate easily, it also lowers durability and allows for contaminants to seep in, may be useful for a biological base (Biofilters etc?) )
  • Products can also be put in a Kiln / Sintering Furnace to allow the sintered part to melt into a solid part, but this may introduce some imperfections, which may impact the tolerances of the part
