SLS TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Standard lead time About 7 working days, depending on part size, quantity, number of components and finishing degrees.
Standard accuracy ±0.012 in (± 0.3 mm) - may vary depending on geometry.
Layer thickness 0.004 in - 0.1 mm
Minimum wall thickness 0.039 in - 1 mm
Maximum build dimensions Dimensions are unlimited as components may be composed of several sub-parts. The maximum build envelope is 15 x 15 x 16 in (381 x 381 x 406 mm).
Surface structure Unfinished parts typically have a grainy surface but all kinds of fine finishes are possible. Laser-sintered parts can be smoothed, painted and coated.
