Selective Laser Sintering
Powder printing capabilities at PrintCity include Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) which uses a high-powered laser to sinter small particles of polymer powder into solid structures.
The technology allows the printing of complex parts with no need for support structures, this is because the un-sintered powder supports the parts during printing. Unused powder is recycled during the post-processing stage, where parts are cleaned of loose powder.
Benefits and applications of this 3D printing process include production of end use parts, short run or custom manufacturing, functional prototyping, high accuracy, and quality parts. We currently run our SLS machine with Nylon 12 material.

Continuous Fiber Fabrication (CFF) printing is a process unique to Markforged. It combines Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) with a second extruder (print head) that deposits a continuous strand of reinforcing material, such as Fiberglass, Carbon Fiber or Aramid …
Stereolithography (SLA) is a 3D printing process that uses Ultraviolet (UV) lasers to draw out each layer of a 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) model into a vat of photopolymer liquid resin. …
