Formlabs Fuse 1: Starting Your First Print
While most are familiar with Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Stereolithography (SLA), there is one technology making big waves in the 3D printing community: Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). SLS is a process that has seen significant advancement within the 3D Printing industry in the last 5+ years.
What makes SLS printing unique is the way it works. SLS printing fuses polymer powder in layers. This technique fills hollow spaces with loose powder, eliminating the need for additional support structures. Issues arising from printing hollow spaces, overhangs, and thin features are becoming a thing of the past!
Usually wasted material is a big problem with SLS printers. However with the Fuse 1 & Fuse Sift from Formlabs, you can reclaim up to 70% of unused material for re-use in future prints! You can find the Formlabs Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift at Shop3D.
