Laser sintering (LS) is used for rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing by creating elaborate three-dimensional objects that can be used for models or as functional parts.

Laser sintering (LS) is an additive manufacturing technique that uses a laser beam to produce 3D parts by fusing together thermoplastic powders layer by layer.

There is a growing interest for LS technology because of it provides quick identification of design issues and easily produces durable complex parts.

Orgasol® Invent Smooth powder is used in LS to produce small and complex polyamide pieces. Due to its unique, patented polymerization process, Orgasol® Invent Smooth powder has outstanding viscosity stability and an unmatched low refresh rate. Compared to other PA 12 powders, this is an important benefit of using Orgasol® Invent Smooth powder in rapid manufacturing.

Using Orgasol® Invent Smooth powder in rapid manufacturing achieves excellent contour resolution and surface finish, thanks to its unique particle shape and narrow particle size distribution.
