SLS vs FDM

There are different types of 3D printers based on different technologies, but what they have in common is that they fall under the production category of “additive manufacturing”. Unlike conventional methods, such as milling, sawing, and turning, where a piece of material is machined to remove undesired material, a 3D printer creates a component by adding material in layers. This … Läs mer
