Abstract

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a complex process involving many process parameters. These parameters are not all independent. A factorial design technique is utilized to study the effects of three main process parameters, laser power, laser beam scanning speed, and powder packing density as well as their interactions on the sintering depth and fractional density. The results of this investigation provide useful information for the further experimental analysis of the process parameters and for selecting suitable parameters for SLS process.
