New SLS 3D printer Formlabs Fuse 1+ 30W



The Fuse 1+ 30W is a compact 3D printer with SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) technology that uses a powerful 30W laser to sinter plastic powder. With this device Formlabs builds on the Fuse 1 and offers very fast production of functional parts with excellent parameters and properties. For production on the Fuse 1+ 30W, 4 materials are available to achieve the required properties of the printed parts.

Compared to the Fuse 1, it offers up to twice the printing speed, higher laser power to address other materials currently being developed.

The main technical parameters of the Fuse 1+ 30W 3D printer and its comparison with the Fuse 1 are shown in the table below.
