What is direct metal laser sintering?

Direct metal laser sintering is an additive manufacturing process in which particles from a bed of metallic powder are fused to produce parts and assemblies. It helps turn designs into scaled prototypes as close to the designed model. It is mainly used in the earliest stages of product development and can be used in conceptual models, functional prototypes, tooling, electronics, jewelry, and medical industries.

3D printing requires 3D CAD models to print a part or assembly. The 3D models can be made using parametric CAD software such as Solidworks and CATIA V5, or Subdivision modeling software such as 3DS and Blender.

Advanced 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing

What are the advantages & disadvantages of using direct metal laser sintering?

Direct metal laser sintering is used over other 3D printing processes due to:

   •   Fast process
   •  Batch printing
   •  No need for a supporting structure
   •  Rigid result
   •  Accurate features
   •  Printing precious materials (gold, Platinium, silver)

Although there are disadvantages to using direct metal laser sintering:

   •  Cooling time
   •  Post-processing
   •  No recycling

How is it fabricated?

In Direct metal laser sintering, the 3D printer slices the 3D model into several cross sections and prints them layer by layer. Each layer of powder material is deposited upon a print bed by a material depositing unit. Then a laser beam is generated and oriented by a rotating mirror to fuse powder particles.

Once the 3D printed model is finished, it should cool down before being removed from the platform. Post-processing might be required to remove any excess material and burrs or to smooth surfaces.
