3D printing / Selective Laser syntering

Project by Lizzy

Below you find the project Cobra . The LED desk light was made using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). This is a rapid prototyping process which builds models up in layers. A laser only sinters 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. It 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. Make sure you check these dimensions first.
Below the project is explained in a 7 min tutorial.
