DIY Selective Laser Sintering FAQ
June 29, 2013 04:38PM
Guys,

Some time ago I started research on feasibility of building a DIY Selective Laser Sintering rapid prototyping machine to work with thermoplastics. It quickly turned out that a there are quite a few enthusiasts who are already doing something in this area, as well as wealth of helpful information. However, what I found, it is very time consuming to gather enough background information to actually be able to design and build an SLS machine.

So, I've started a DIY Selective Laser Sintering FAQ page on the RepRap wiki with the aim to build easily accessible all-in-one collection of common answers to common questions so that other enthusiasts like me could save time looking for the same information. Hopefully this becomes a living document as knowledge of the community grows.

It's in early days, and I'm still adding material to it, but I'm eager to share as it already has some answer, and, who knows, even might prompt someone to contribute smiling smiley

Any type of powder (ABS, PLA, etc) in small quanities
is impossible to purchase.

Anybody got a source that I don't have to order a metric ton
and ship by container ship??
