SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) is an additive manufacturing method. It creates parts additively by sintering fine polymer powder particles, to fuse them together. It has the most consistent results between printing batches of many parts.
|Material properties||NYLON 12|
|Ultimate Tensile Strength||50 MPa|
|Tensile Modulus||1850 MPa|
|Elongation at Break||11 %|
This process is usable both for prototyping and final parts. SLS products can have complex features, that can't be produced using FDM or SLA processes with ease. The finished parts are homogeneous, very strong, and have no visible layer lines.
Models created with this process have excellent dimensional tolerances and high resolution features. Material properties like Ultimate tensile strength, elongation at break and others can be controlled for each produced part. The finished parts are homogeneous.

FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printing process can be used both for prototyping and final products. We have extensive experience in printing using thermoplastics, like: ABS, PLA, PETG and others. Properties of parts produced by FDM technology can be varied while changing various parameters of the process, depending on the loading and aesthetic requirements for the resulting item.
Our current printing facilities enable NILAS3D to scale FDM production up to 700 parts per week.
|Ultimate Strength||50 MPa||65MPa||53MPa||26 - 43MPa|
|Max. service temperature||98°C||52°C||73°C||60-74°C|
|Key properties||Impact resistant, Tough||Rigid, Easiest to print||Chemically resistant, Water resistant||Flexible, Fatigue resistant|
Big Format Prints
When you think of creating sizable models or parts you might think of hand carving or very expensive CNC machining solutions. Times have changed, and quite recently 3D printing has become an excellent means of production for such projects. Using our large print volume 3D printers we produce parts of virtually any size. Our process covers all steps necessary for such project to become a success, from idea creation, 3D modeling to production and finishing.
Take a look at our previous large format 3D print projects at our projects section of the website or contact us so we can help you in the best way possible.
