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).
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.
Our Technical Lead Engineer Stefan Noser was always fascinated by 3D printed organic shapes. To illustrate the maximum printable volume of our Sintratec S2 system he decided to redesign the build cylinder with a voronoi structure. Watch the video to see how much parts you can produce with just a single print job!
Do you want more than just a 3D printer? The Sintratec S2 is a modular, scalable manufacturing plattform, ideally suited for professional prototyping and production. Watch our new Advertising Video where we summarize the benefits and potential of the SLS system.
It is burning hot in Europe and we like to keep a cool head with SLS – for instance with these 3D printed Sintratec Beer Cap Openers. We wish you a nice rest of the summer! (Disclaimer: The beverage shown in this clip is purely fictional and not for sale.)
Sintratec Mechanical Engineer Angelo Bulgheroni designed a printable nozzle for the Sintratec vacuum cleaning solution, thus making depowdering of smaller parts easier than ever. The STL file is available to download for everyone.
We had the chance to 3D print the scientific reconstruction of an Allosaurus. The model illustrates the benefits of Selective Laser Sintering particularly well: Not only is this large print extremely detailed, but also consists of just 4 main parts (torso, legs, and tail) which were printed in a single shot on the Sintratec S2.
In an interdisciplinary course the team around mechanical engineering student Eric Hayoz developed a multifunctional tap attachment. To be able to construct the prototype in a timely manner, the students also made use of the SLS technology.
Sintratec community member Mike sent us his beautiful 3D design of a custom watch strap, perfectly tailored to his wrist. We 3D printed it on the Sintratec S2 System – watch the video to see how he makes use of it!
Sintratec 3D operator Tomy designed a customized PC Mouse cover, perfectly tailored to a hand scan. After photogrammetry, modeling and 3D printing the part on our Sintratec S2 system, we now use it for our office mice.
