In view of the fact that artistic design and cultural creative models often have a large number of special-shaped curved surfaces or hollow structures, compared with FDM and SLA technology that need to use support structures when printing suspended parts, laser sintering technology (SLS) | Double Laser Sls Printer printing using powder materials is more advantageous, SLS technology usually does not need to add support structures in the printing process, and there is no trouble caused by the support link, and the freedom of the artwork structure is greatly improved; In addition, SLS technology can use materials such as nylon or TPU, which themselves have excellent strength, toughness, temperature resistance, and wear-resistant durability, and are suitable for printing various shapes and complex artistic designs.

SLS technology is also widely used in the field of sculpture design, which used to require designers to draw drafts by hand and then make them by hand, but now they only need to be modeled in software and then handed over to the printer to manufacture. The excellent strength of nylon material can support a variety of styling designs and is durable.
