How Strong Are SLS Printed Parts? - 3DChimera

How Strong Are SLS Printed Parts?

A question we often get asked is “How strong are SLS printed parts?”.

One option is to have your Sintratec Kit prints parts out of a nylon (PA12) powder, which is fused together by a laser. This method raises questions of strength, because the printed part is not a solid chunk of nylon. On the flip side, sintered nylon is surprisingly tough and holds detailed features well.

How much Can You Fit In Your Sintratec Kit? - 3DChimera

How Much Can You Fit In Your Sintratec Kit?

The Sintratec Kit is a compact but mighty desktop SLS printer that can be packed full of parts for printing. Since each layer takes about the same time, whether it's 1 part or 64 parts, it is more effective to utilize as much of the volume as possible. This means you can load up the build chamber to print overnight and it will be ready for cleanup and running the next day.
