Formlabs Announces its First SLS Platform

Formlabs has announced the launch of Fuse 1, its first selective laser sintering (SLS) platform, and Form Cell, an automated production solution that houses Form 2 machines. The Fuse 1 delivers the renowned benefits of SLS, while also boasting the reliability of its Form 2 3D printer. Prices starting at $9,999, the Fuse 1 is around 20x less expensive than the next cheapest industrial SLS machine. Formlabs says its aim is to promote next-generation digital manufacturing and 3D printing’s capabilities as a mass customisation tool. Fuse 1, the SLS 3D printer, and Form Cell, the automated production platform, are already being tested by a number of companies, including Google. Source: Inside 3D Printing News
