Autodesk and Sinterit formulated SLS printing easier

Model manufactured with Sinterit Lisa 3D printer

Autodesk Netfabb industrial additive software has added support for Sinterit Lisa, an affordable selective laser sintering (SLS) printer. With a new sieve and automated operation, SLS quality printing has become easier than ever.

Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, is continuously seeking new ways to reduce costs and facilitate additive manufacturing. Sinterit, a company established by former Google employees, pursues a similar aim. Their mission is to manufacture as user-friendly as possible professional SLS printers.

By integrating the Sinterit Lisa printer with Autodesk Netfabb industrial additive software, the users of this popular design solution can start using their new printer almost immediately without needing to learn how to use another piece of software. Lisa can be operated using Netfabb in the Standard, Premium or Ultimate levels.

To make SLS printing even easier, Sinterit has just added a sieve developed for Lisa that increases the speed of removing powder and facilitates multiple uses of the material. Additionally, printer users have recently received other new features: automatic levelling of the powder surface, automatic setting of the bed heights, and the possibility to multiply prints in the working space.
