The Formula Student Team FST Lisboa from Portugal makes use of various 3D printing technologies to build next-generation electric and autonomous driving race cars. For their current prototypes, Sintratec has sponsored multiple laser sintered components to the students.

SLS 3D Printed Actioncam Holder

Cyrill Aemisegger is a passionate skydiver and equally enthusiastic about 3D printing. To combine the two, he has created an additively manufactured actioncam mount with which he can record his jumps. In the interview, he reveals why he prefers the SLS material to a conventional actioncam mount.

Sintratec supports construction of the first Swiss Supersonic Rocket

A Swiss student project is shooting for the stars: As part of the student association for space, the team of project EULER is building the first supersonic rocket of Switzerland. For their construction, the students also make use 3D printing technologies such as Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).

Shaping the future of mobility with 3D printing

ETHEC city is a Swiss student project that aims to radically change the mobility of tomorrow with the technologies of today. To face the challenges of climate change and sustainability, the team develops an electric motorcycle with an ingenious two-wheel drive that saves energy and improves the range.

A speedboat drive made with SLS parts

Luca Dalbosco is just 16 years old but as a diligent tinkerer he already uses 3D printing for his models. Within a few weeks he has built a fully functional speedboat drive from SLS (“Selective Laser Sintering”) parts and is successfully navigating Swiss waters with it. In the interview he tells us how he went […]
