Within the analysis some first rules for the manufacturing of parts with integrated functions could be established and validated for laser sintering
. These rules enable engineers for the first time ever to fully utilize the potentials of additive manufacturing and dimension products suitable for Rapid Manufacturing.

However, e-manufacturing with laser sintering
will continue to face competition from conventional technologies because they still offer some advantages, survey participants said.
When used with the laser sintering
process for cores, not only large, but a/so complicated castings can be produced as prototypes or in small batches in a short time.
FDM and laser sintering
3-D printing techniques offer obvious advantages for low-volume production in the aerospace industry as they have no tooling costs.
Selecting a right powdering material is the most important factor in selective laser sintering
Farsoon is a large manufacturer of industrial 3D printing machines using selective laser sintering
of plastics and is developing high quality plastic and metal technologies.
