Knitted SLS

Material Name

Manufacturer

MC 7879-02

PROCESS

An additive manufacturing process to produce flexible polymer parts that resemble fine-gauge knitted textiles. This process is known as SLS (selective laser sintering), a technique that uses lasers to fuse small particles of powdered material to create 3D parts. This ‘knitted’ design was created by Mark Beecroft, and was printed all in one piece. Several designs are available, ranging from a fine ‘knit’ sleeve to a flat ‘knitted’ sheet. Although they look delicate, the designs are surprisingly robust. The printing machines run on nylon PA2200 powder, with a 1:1 ratio of new to recycled powder, and are printed in 0.1 mm (0.004 in) layers with optimal laser parameters to ensure a quality product. SLS-printed nylon is strong and flexible, making it suitable for a wide range of industries. Size will vary depending on design and intended use. Nylon SLS parts are always produced in white (the color of the powder), but can be dyed in a wide range of colors using custom equipment. Due to the durability of this material, it has a broad spectrum of applications ranging from prototypes to production parts.
