What our customers say:

"With Additively, we have an easy way to evaluate how to realise our parts with 3D printing. We just post them and within shortest time, we know whether it is possible and which service provider can produce them at what cost."

Patrik Hoegger
Head of production development
Bühler AG


"We have realised several Laser Sintering parts with Additively. We post parts and within 24 hours have several quotations from suitable service providers to choose from. All we have to do is order the parts."

Manuel Baumann
Mechanical engineer
Esoro AG

"We would like to thank Additively and its team. With very little effort we received four competitive quotations for our Laser Sintering parts. The price differences between the different Laser Sintering services and the savings potential are surprisingly high."

Process description


A thin layer of plastic powder is selectively melted by a laser. The parts are built up layer by layer in the powder bed. Read more

A laser sintering machine will coat a layer of plastic powder onto a build platform, which is melted by a laser (or multiple lasers). The build platform will then be lowered and the next layer of plastic powder will be laid out on top. By repeating the process of laying out powder and melting where needed, the parts are built up in the powder bed.

Laser Sintering does not require any support structures. The built parts are sustained by the loose plastic powder. The entire build volume can therefore be filled with several parts including stacking and pyramiding of parts, which are then all produced together. The process chamber is preheated and under a protective gas environment.

Advantages / disadvantages


Laser sintering can manufacture parts in standard plastics with good mechanical properties. There is a constantly growing set of materials available. However, parts do not have exactly the same properties as their injection molded counterparts. Read more

The technology manufactures parts in standard plastics with good mechanical properties. A constantly widening set of materials is available. For small lot sizes, laser sintering is price competitive and often the cheapest solution.

Laser sintering parts do not have exactly the same properties as their injection molded counterparts. Especially in regards to surface finish.

Application areas


  • Prototypes are built by laser sintering in standard materials for form / fit and functional testing
  • Support parts (jigs, fixtures, helps) are produced
  • Small series parts are manufactured in standard materials
