3D Printing: Design for Selective Laser Sintering
Selective laser sintering (SLS) is one of the most commonly used methods of additive manufacturing. This course will teach you how to properly modify a model for successful SLS printing.
What you'll learn
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.
