Estimating Warpage of Selective Laser Sintering Parts Using Thermomechanical Analysis


The plastics used in Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) have a higher thermal expansion when compared with other materials. Therefore, it is important to know how the dimensions of an SLS part change at different temperatures during the build and during use. The higher the thermal expansion coefficient, the more prone are the parts to warpage or curling and the build-up of residual stresses. Learn more!
