Formlabs just released the Fuse 1 selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printer. This totally re-designed SLS 3D printer is ready to deliver industrial grade nylon parts, right on your workbench. Delivering production-ready nylon at a low cost per part, a large build chamber to accommodate various project sizes, and the ability to print 24/7, no other SLS printer offers the quality and ease of use as the Fuse 1.
Formlabs has also begun to ship the Fuse Sift, an all-in-one powder recovery station for the Fuse 1. The Fuse Sift was created to flawlessly integrate into your SLS workflow and deliver a seamless, simple post-processing setup.
SLS 3D printing has long been the domain of expensive, high-end industrial printers, oftentimes putting them out of reach for most business and product designers. The Fuse 1 delivers the industrial power of SLS into your workshop with an affordable, compact system for production-ready nylon parts.
Affordable SLS Printing On Your Workbench
The Fuse 1 offers a number of benefits typically found in industrial level SLS printers costing four times as much:
- Low material costs. With an expansive build chamber and the ability to reuse nylon powder, the Fuse 1 offers industrial quality SLS 3D printing for a low cost per part.
- High productivity and throughput. SLS printing is the fastest additive manufacturing technology for functional, durable prototypes and end-use parts. Many parts can be tightly arranged during printing to maximize the available build space. Create hundreds of parts with each print cycle and keep your machine running 24/7 with multiple build chambers.
- Design freedom. With no need for support structures, SLS 3D printing allows for the creation of intricate geometries, interlocking parts, interior channels, and other complex designs.
- Proven, end-use materials. Nylon and its composites are proven, high-quality thermoplastics with mechanical properties comparable to those created with conventional manufacturing methods like injection molding.
