What is SLS Formlabs?

The Fuse 1 by Formlabs is a high performance, compact, affordable Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) platform. The Fuse 1 delivers industrial power in a small footprint with effective powder containment and easy setup.

What does SLS printing stand for?

Selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printing is trusted by engineers and manufacturers across different industries for its ability to produce strong, functional parts.

What is SLA Formlabs?

Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing is the most common resin 3D printing process that has become vastly popular for its ability to produce high-accuracy, isotropic, and watertight prototypes and end-use parts in a range of advanced materials with fine features and smooth surface finish.

Do I need to wash resin prints?

If resin accidentally comes in contact with bare skin, wash immediately with soap and water. Avoid leaving resin trails on items you touch. If a spill occurs, clean it right away before the resin hardens – a paper towel may just do the trick.

Can you sand 3D printed resin?

Can You Sand Resin 3D Prints? Yes, you can sand resin 3D prints but you should make sure to cure your resin 3D print before you start sanding. It’s recommended to do dry sanding with low 200 grit, then wet sanding with higher grits of sandpaper.

Can you paint SLA resin?

In the hands of a skilled user, SLA 3D printed parts can quickly be spray painted. The best technique for spray painting is to use multiple, thin coats, ideally done in a single session. A spray-on primer is the best way to paint your printed parts because it quickly covers a surface with an even coating.

How porous are SLS parts?

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a popular method of 3-dimensional printing, which is commonly used to create prototype parts. However, due to the sintering process, the parts are very porous and have poor mechanical properties when compared to injection molded, cast, or machined equivalents.

What does the SLA stand for?

SLA stands for service-level agreement and is a document that defines the level of service expected during an exchange between a receiver of service and a service provider.

What does FDM stand for in 3D printing?

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology works with specialized 3D printers and production-grade thermoplastics to build strong, durable and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
