Comparing SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) with injection molding

  Before you manufacture anything, you need to decide two major things: What material(s) your product will be made of. How to manufacture it.   This post will contrast injection molding and 3D printing, specifically looking at the costs associated with each. As a common 3D production method, we’re using selective laser sintering as our […]

3D Printing with Nylon: Why we love it, and you should too

As many of you may already know, nylon is a thermoplastic. If you’re 3D printing with nylon materials, you’re either using a powder that hardens into durable plastic when melted by a laser, or you’re using a plastic filament that’s extruded through a nozzle. Nylon has unique properties that make it a preferable material to print […]
