Abstract

With more and more materials used in the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) process, it is becoming necessary to use a database to manage the process efficiently. In this paper, a relational database for the SLS process is described. The database includes powdered material data, sintering parameters, machine characteristics, mechanical properties and surface quality of prototypes. Use ofthis database will make it is easy to store and retrieve processing information and make decisions for planning the SLS. This paper will go on to describe how the database can be extended to include other RP technologies.
