3D printing / Selective Laser syntering

Below you find the project Cobra. This LED table lamp was made using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) a rapid prototyping process which builds models up in layers by lasering only the parts that need to be solidified. It is an affordable process to model up prototypes or forms which would be difficult to produce with standard manufacturing processes. SLS builds up your model in Nylon which results in a fairly strong object which leaves many possibilities for post processing and finishes such as lacquering or metal plating. The dimensions for an SLS build depends on the capacity of the machine that will build it so make sure you check these dimensions first.
Below the project is explained in a 7 min tutorial. The movie is 27MB so please be patient for it to load.
