SLS 3D printer
Additive manufacturing for local product development
World-leading 3D-printer technology
Now you can print finished products with SLS-quality without the need for powder rooms, dedicated staff and complex settings. 3D-printed components from Wematter Gravity have the same strength as injection molding and can replace both milled aluminum and tool investments. The advantages of additive manufacturing with the strength from conventional manufacturing.
When Wematter was founded, there was a clear ambition to develop a system that is as easy to handle as FDM-printers, with the same capabilities as SLS with comparable strength to conventional manufacturing. The result is Wematter Gravity, an SLS 3D printer that produces production-quality components and unique powder handling that enables manufacturing in the office.
Large build volume
SLS-Prints produced and delivered in hours
Reduce lead time and cost on your SLS 3D-printed parts by having your own SLS 3D-printer at your office. Print functional prototypes, tools and replacements in your own additive manufacturing system without extensive labour time, or powder safe facilities. See how you can save time and money with Wematter in the example below.
|Pieces per print job||30|
|Running time||12 hours|
|Typical service bureau cost per unit||70 EUR|
|Wematter 3D-printed cost per unit||3,5 EUR|
|Cost savings* ||95 %|
|Time savings*||85 %|
*compared to price and leadtime for a service bureau print job
Advanced SLS technology in a user-friendly format
For the first time ever, there is an SLS system adapted for the broad masses. Wematter Gravity SLS 3D-printers are CE-marked for office use, hospital environment, lab or workshop.
This means that there are no requirements for dedicated staff, no investments in infrastructure and, above all, no complex powder handling. Imagine that all that is needed is to connect the internet and a standard power socket, the installation goes in an instant. For the first time ever in the history of 3D-printing, no 7 kW three-phase, no dedicated cooler, no complex ventilation and no extraction are needed.
Benefits with the system
⬤ Strong & Flexible
SLS 3D-printed parts with mechanical properties as strong as injection molding without the need of support structure.

Wematter Gravity SLS 3D printing system
A stable thermal environment with Atmosphere
Atmosphere is a unit that provides improved control of build chamber conditions in the SLS 3D-printer Gravity for increased part density, surface finish, and mechanical performance. Atmosphere communicates with the 3D-printer Gravity‘s software and creates a more stable thermal environment during the printing process.
- Increased mechanical properties of components for large print jobs
- Increased powder recyclability rate of unsintered material
- 70 % improved strain at break of printed parts when using Atmosphere with recycled powder compared to printing without Atmosphere
- Increased aesthetic characteristics for white printing material
- Enables increased efficiency of powder when printing components

Frequently asked questions
Yes, completely! Every single program code and little detail, we have developed entirely ourselves. In addition, we manufacture the printers using our 3D-printers that print parts for our 3D- printers that print parts for our 3D-printers that…
Our 3D-printer that can deliver high-strength details in an office environment, our unique cloud solution, our business model and our technical know-how about plastic construction and material expertise.
We mainly turn to mechanical consulting companies with in-house development and producing companies with specialized mechanical products with a large element of plastic. Do you work for such a company? Call us today and we will talk about your needs over a coffee!
Imagine only paying for the prints you need. With Wematter you rent a 3D-printer and we think of the rest. You do not have to worry about machine, service or installation costs. You also get free updates, lower liquidity burden and worry-free delivery. Get in touch and we will be happy to tell you more about all the benefits.
We help you pack the 3D-prints with our cloud service. Our proprietary smart algorithms handle multiple 3D-objects simultaneously and stacks them as tightly as possible. You get your prints faster and efficiency increases while consuming less powder in the process.
The absolute biggest disadvantage of a powder bed 3D-printer (SLS) is the powder handling. We at Wematter have solved this with a very simple solution where you refill powder with our patented powder packaging. Pick up the package, place in the opening and turn around. It could not be easier.
Absolutely! You do not have to think about service, that material is out of stock or downtime when it really matters. We think of everything, so that you can focus on the important thing: to create.
