Selective Laser Sintering

3D printing post-build processes for selective laser sintering

Selective laser sintering (SLS) uses a CO2 laser that lightly fuses nylon-based powder, layer by layer, until final thermoplastic parts are created.

Multi Jet Fusion

multi jet fusion black 3d printed parts from protolabs

Multi Jet Fusion selectively applies fusing and detailing agents across a bed of nylon powder, which are fused in thousands of layers by heating elements into a solid functional component.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering

Our 3D printing service uses direct metal laser sintering to build metal parts

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) uses a fiber laser system that draws onto a surface of atomized metal powder, welding the powder into fully dense metal parts.

Stereolithography

stereolithography parts on 3D printing build platform

Stereolithography (SL) uses an ultraviolet laser that draws on the surface of liquid thermoset resin to create thousands of thin layers until final parts are formed.

PolyJet

elastomeric prototypes built with PolyJet 3D printing

PolyJet uses a jetting process where small droplets of liquid photopolymer are sprayed from multiple jets onto a build platform and cured in layers that form elastomeric parts.
