SinterIt, the company that announced the release of an affordable Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printer in April 2015, officially launches the Sinterit Lisa later this month at the 2015 edition of the Euromold trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The company, founded by Konrad Glowacki, Mike Grymala-Moszczynski, and Paul Szczurek, has been trying to develop not only a high quality SLS 3D printer, but to design one that remained accessible and reasonably priced. SLS technology, a particularly advanced technique in additive manufacturing that consists of sintering a powdered material with a laser to the design of a 3D model, had previously been extremely expensive, with SLS 3D printers costing around $180,000, or the process having to be done through a proxy 3D printing company, such as Shapeways.

Now, however, SinterIt have developed and launched an affordable and high quality desktop SLS 3D printer, the Sinterit Lisa, for only $8000. The printer will be available for online order before its official Euromold launch starting on September 9, 2015 at 14:00 GMT. Not only that, however, SinterIt have announced that the first five people to purchase the Sinterit Lisa before the Euromold trade fair will get it for the discounted price of $5000, the next five will be able to purchase it for $6000 and the last group eligible for a discounted price will receive it for $7000.

Not only will the Sinterit Lisa be delivered completely ready for 3D printing, but the printer's compact size and its wireless operations system make it an accommodating printer spatially, just so long as it is kept in a ventilated space. Additionally, once the 3D design to be printed has been sent to the Sinterit Lisa, the printer's autonomous operating system takes care of everything, and its internal camera module allows for the user to watch and keep track of the printing process.

Additional details of the printer include:

  • Max Build Envelope: 130mm x 170mm x 130mm
  • Scan Speed: 500mm/s
  • Laser Power: 5W
  • Connectivity: WiFi
  • Material Cost: Approximately $100/kg

For the moment, the Sinterit Lisa can only accomodate black polyamide 12 powder as its printing material, though SinterIt has emphasized that more colors and materials will be made available soon.

The newly developed Sinterit Lisa is a promising next step in making even the most advanced and inaccessible 3D printing techniques such as Selective Laser Sintering available to a broad range of makers. If you happen to be in Germany this September, SinterIt and their new SLS 3D printer can be found at the Euromold trade fair from the 22nd to the 25th in Düsseldorf in hall 16 booth D126.
