= one of the 3D Printing or Additive Fabrication technologies


From the Replicator blog [1]:

"the awesome union of 3D printing and Lasers. The process is similar to stereolithography replacing the UV light with a laser and a vat of liquid with a powdered base. The major benefit of SLS is the ability to produce parts in a variety of materials ranging from plastics to ceraminc to metals." (

The Sinterstation by 3D Systems is an example of this technology in practice.
