Recent innovations with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) systems and bioresorbable polymers are redefining opportunities for the 3D printing of medical devices with complex geometries across a range of application areas. SLS systems utilize a high-powered laser to selectively melt and fuse powder particles of a bioresorbable polymer in a layer by layer process to manufacture a final implantable medical device part. Depending on the part geometry, these systems can typically print geometries as small as 0.4 mm with a tolerance of +/- 0.25 mm.
