SLS 3D Printing Quotes

SLS is a popular powder-based additive technology used to create models, prototypes and end-use parts in durable, engineering-grade thermoplastics.

Get an SLS Quote Now

  • What is SLS?

    • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is an additive manufacturing process. During SLS, a blade spreads a thin layer across the build volume. A laser is used to sinter cross-sections of the part which fuses the powder together, gradually building a solid structure layer by layer. SLS is similar to selective laser melting (SLM) wherein the materially is melted, not sintered.

Fathom recommends taking an AM approach as a bridge-to-production solution or to avoid tooling. By using 3D printing, parts can also be built as needed.
    1. Quantity Required / / 3,500
    2. AM Part Cost / / $3.52 ea (Lead-Time of 5 Days)
    3. IM Part Cost / / $3.60 ea (Lead-Time of 35-40 Days, Prototype Tool)
    4. Break-Even Point / / 3,740 Parts
    5. Material Used & Weight / / PA12 (4.6 g)
    6. Part Dimensions / / 25 mm × 23 mm × 25 mm
    7. Injection Molding with Amortized Tool Price
  2. Example (B) Limited Production Run—The tooling cost of this part is high because of a complex parting line and challenging features. When a lower volume of parts is required, Fathom recommends taking an AM approach to reduce on cost and manufacturing time.
    1. Quantity Required / / 1,500
    2. AM Part Cost / / $8.18 ea (Lead-Time of 6 Days)
