So, you have experience with FDM printing, but have hit a wall of slow processing using this method. Selective laser sintering (SLS) is one of the fastest throughput methods of additive manufacturing today. In this course, 3D Printing: Design for Selective Laser Sintering, you'll learn how to properly prepare a model utilizing SLS printing. First, you'll explore the process of SLS along with the multiple design rules that must be kept in mind. Next, you'll put your knowledge to use by learning how to modify a fun phone mount for a bike. Then, you'll discover a workflow for manually merging your multiple versions of the phone mount model to re-implement design changes made during the SLS prototyping process. Finally, you'll cover multiple CAD-independent concepts, such as how to leverage user parameters, how to complete the modifications using both a parametric workflow, and a direct editing workflow. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the necessary skills and knowledge to successfully modify a model for laser sintering. Software required: Fusion 360.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Mitch Pricer, and welcome to my course, 3D Printing: Design for Selective Laser Sintering. I'm an industrial designer and additive manufacturing expert at MPD LLC. In this course, we're going to dive in and discuss how to modify a model for selective laser sintering, one of the many additive manufacturing methods. Some of the major topics we will cover include design rules for modifying your models correctly, some of the Fusion 360 basics, how to make the necessary modifications, both parametrically and with direct editing, and how to manually merge versions in Fusion 360. By the end of this course, you'll know just about everything required to modify a model for selective laser sintering. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with any CAD package; however, you'll get the most out of this course if you follow along in Fusion 360. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to modify parts for SLS with the 3D Printing: Design for Selective Laser Sintering course, here at Pluralsight.
