Could you imagine a product made all in one piece? We can, because SLS 3D printing technology makes it possible to print very complicated structures in just one take. But in real life, we are surrounded by objects made from a lot of parts that require to be connected somehow. Designer, even knowing the possibilities of SLS, sometimes needs to create models that are a part of something bigger. From this article, you will learn how to design connections for 3D printed, SLS models.
Sometimes a model that you create would be bigger than the maximum size that your 3D printer can produce. In such case, it is necessary to split the model into pieces that are able to be later joined. So how to design it in a way that makes all the parts capable of being easily attached together. And how to make them detachable or create a movable interlocking connection?
Let me show you the types of connections that are perfect to be used with SLS technology and that can be easily printed with Sinterit Lisa and Lisa PRO. Thanks to the possibilities of this technology, we can do amazing things, and all that without any support structures.
