Abstract

Selective laser sintering technology can be used to create three dimensional objects out of various materials. This method uses a high-powered laser to solidify powdered material into thin layers which are produced sequentially on top of one another until the object is finished. The powder layer thickness and uniformity directly affects the resolution and quality of the object. The adjustability of the powder distribution apparatus allows the use of various materials and provides a method for system optimization. Modular construction of these components is a priority and will allow future modification with relative ease.
