"Outsourcing vs. In-House: When Does it Make Sense to Bring SLS 3D Printing In-House?"

In this white paper, we evaluate the value proposition of bringing selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printers in-house, in comparison with outsourcing SLS parts from a service bureau.

While SLS 3D printing is one of the most popular additive manufacturing processes, SLS printers are currently installed in businesses at lower numbers than other technologies due to their traditionally large size, complexity, and high price.

With the introduction of the economically sized and priced Fuse Series, Formlabs has changed the landscape and allowed for manufacturers to bring SLS technology in-house, empowering businesses to reduce their costs and reliance on external suppliers. By providing an overview of the SLS 3D printing market today and conducting six case studies representing three applications, we will demonstrate the positive ROI of bringing SLS in- house for all different types of businesses.
