Sinterit launches the new type of powder for small SLS 3D printers - TPE. It is the first thermoplastic elastomer in the company's offer. TPE  shows advantages that are typical for both plastic materials and rubbery materials. On the one hand, it is elastic, with an elongation at break of 196[%], which is a few times more than tested within PA group of materials. But on the other hand, it can be covered with the sealer which makes it watertight and airtight. And this is an entirely new feature.

According to Worldwide Semiannual 3D Printing Spending Guide by IDC “3D printers and materials will account for roughly two-thirds of the worldwide AM spending total, reaching $6.9 billion and $6.7 billion respectively in 2021. Services spending will reach $5.5 billion in 2021. “With this numbers in mind, let’s sum up Formnext 2018, the most significant industry show for additive manufacturing professionals. This year edition was the biggest ever with 632 exhibitors from 32 countries and 26 919 visitors. Sinterit, the manufacturer of SLS 3D printers, was one of them. Paraphrasing the Sinatra song “My kind of town”, we would like to say “Our kind of show”.

Is it possible to achieve white color on a small SLS 3D printer? This question was asked a hundred times. Somehow clients love white materials, but in selective laser sintering technology, it was usually connected with big, industrial machines. Out of range for many SMEs. Now, Sinterit decided to change it and provide the first TPU material that is as close to the white color as it is possible, preserving the material’s properties at the same time.

In this military glass case printed with new Sinterit Lisa Pro using PA11 Onyx, it was essential to produce a durable and individually shaped design to fit particular features of combat glasses. Printed as one piece, it doesn't need assembling or any different parts such as screws or hinges to be functional.

Among many differences between current techniques of 3D printing there's one that concerns all - the post-processing, that needs to be applied, after you take your part out of any printer – because there’s always something that needs to be done. Let's take a closer look at what actions need to be taken in case of each technology, and how time-consuming these processes really are.

3D printing is a relatively new technology, and as such, it brings a lot of questions to the table. People aren't sure how it works, if it's safe, or what it requires. Lack of knowledge often gives life to myths, making the technology seem much more cumbersome and threatening, than it really is. In case of the SLS method used for sintering polyamide and other plastic powders, one of the most commonly discussed and demonized topics is powder handling. Let’s take a look at the issue and clarify what’s real and what's not.

Every software engineer has heard of Donald Knuth and his book series “The Art of Computer Programming”, called the Computer Programmer's Bible. But not everyone knows about professor Knuth’s fascination with Hamiltonian graphs. This story begins with his visit to the British Museum in London, where he examined ancient Greek icosahedrons whose labels form a Hamiltonian cycle: Α, Β, Γ, Δ, ... , Τ, Υ, Α. Inspired by the exhibits, he added an assignment to his upcoming book. In exercise 7.2.2.4.9, he asked to design a 21st-century version of such an icosahedron, where the bottom edge of each Latin letter A, B, C, D, … , S, T, A coincides with an upper edge of the previous letter. The solution to the exercise ended with the sentence “It would be nice to own a 3D-printed object like this!”

As you know, one of our main goals in Sinterit is to empower creation. When we think about LEGO and its almost 86 years history, we are sure that connecting plastic bricks was and still is a great school of craft for the generations of designers. Simple form with almost unlimited possibilities. Will 3D printers make it possible to go even further?
