Laser Sintering is known as Selective Laser Sintering (SLS®) for plastic parts, and Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) for metal parts. Both are rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing processes and produce layer-manufactured components and assemblies. Also known as direct digital manufacturing and e-manufacturing, these cutting edge technologies produce smooth, accurate and very durable plastic and metal parts while maintaining very tight tolerances.

With the tolerances that are achievable and the durability these parts offer, Laser Sintering has become the preferred process of prototyping, and is quickly becoming an acceptable and even conventional method of manufacturing.

The largest build chamber size for plastic laser sintering (SLS) is 29” x 21.65” x 29.53”. Standard tolerances are +/- 0.005” for the first inch, and +/- 0.003” for each inch thereafter.

The build chamber for metal laser sintering (DMLS) is 9.85” x 9.85” x 8”. Standard tolerances can range from 0.010” to as fine as 0.003”.
