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 […]

Stay cool during the summer with Selective Laser Sintering

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.)

Printable Vacuum Cleaner Nozzle

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.

Print Your Mind: The reconstruction of an Allosaurus

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.

“PoseidonTap” – a Student Project for the Future

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.

Print Your Mind: A Custom Watch Strap by Mike

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!

Print Your Mind: A Custom PC Mouse Cover by Sintratec

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.

Webinar: Transforming Ideas into Realities

We held the first Sintratec Webinar with pioneering Additive Designer Stephan Henrich last march. Now Henrich has prepared a follow-up course about his additive designing process, from the idea in his head to the physical 3D part. Register now for the second Sintratec Webinar and expand your AM knowledge – it is 100% free! We will notify you via E-Mail once the Webinar goes live on Thursday, the 11th of June at 5pm CET.

Print Your Mind: A Mechanical Phone Stand by Damian

Sintratec community member Damian was among the first to make use of what we offered to our webinar viewers in March: To send us a 3D model and receive their own SLS print for free – in exchange for us to feature the design. Check out his ingenious Mechanical Phone Stand!

Anti Touch Keychain Tool

Designer Stephan Friedrich created an Anti Touch Keychain Tool against the COVID-19 pandemic – we 3D printed it on the Sintratec S2 system and our team uses it daily to open public doors or to type in credit card pins.
