    SLS has been around for a while. People have tried it with the cheap lasers but almost no one makes a laser cutter with a controlled Z axis. Mine does as well as the laser welder I am getting.

    Fusing a plastic powder into shapes is an old process by now.

    I think there are some doing that with powdered metal already.

    started a topic 3D printer idea.

    3D printer idea.

    Evening all,
    Been musing whilst tuning the huxley..dangerous...

    John S has a laser cutter, will do plastic cutting and engraving, has a height adjustable bed to set the laser focus.
    All it needs is the bed automating, a powder spreading system, and a source of powdered plastic.
    Voila! Selective laser sintering printer

    Thoughts?
