SLS 3D print

SLA 3D print

FDM 3D print

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 propertiesNYLON 12
Ultimate Tensile Strength50 MPa
Tensile Modulus1850 MPa
Elongation at Break11 %

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.

SLA (Stereolithography) Is a 3D printing technology used for creating models in a layer by layer fashion using photo-chemical process where a precision laser solidifies photosensitive materials.

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.
