Protolabs – working with Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)

With industrial 3D printing continuing to spearhead advancements in digital manufacturing, one of the most fascinating and ‘game-changing’ technologies in the field is Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS).

DMLS is now one of the go-to processes for design engineers seeking rapid production of highly complex metal prototypes and end-use parts. But how does it work? And how can your project take full advantage of the technology? In this video, the DMLS process is shown in a simple animation, along with an introduction to the Protolabs DMLS guidelines to help improve part manufacturability.
