Fuse 1

The Fuse 1 is Formlabs first benchtop SLS 3D Printer. With a large build volume of 165 x 165 x 300mm allows you to print a variety of different sized prototypes to large batches of end-use parts. With the ability to claim up to 70% of powder, produce functional parts with Nylon 12 Powder. More materials coming soon! See more information about the Fuse 1 below.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) on your Desktop

The Formlabs Fuse 1 is one of the first SLS solutions that brings selective laser sintering to desktop.

what is formlabs fuse 1
  • Dummy

    Print With up to 70% Recycled Powder

Fuse 1 Build volume 165 x 165 x 320 mm

More volume, More parts

With a build volume of 165 x 165 x 320 mm the Fuse 1 can produce a variety of parts. SLS allows users to utilise the whole build volume, without need to allow room for supports thanks to the surround powder self supporting the parts.

Reduce post-processing times

Pack the build chamber with as many parts as you can fit. By doing this you can reduce the time spent in post-processing the parts in the Fuse Sift.

how does the formlabs fuse 1 work

Optical system

The Fuse 1 uses a powerful laser to precisely fuse the powder, layer by layer to produce strong accurate 3D printed parts.

Laser Type: Fiber rated to > 10,000hrs

Laser Wavelength: 1065nm

Laser Power: 10W

Laser Spot Size (FWHM): 200µm

why choose sls printers from formlabs

Materials

Formlabs Nylon 12 is able to bend and return to its original form without fracturing. Perfect for structural, load bearing and mechanical parts. Nylon 12 is able to withstand temperatures up to 171°C making it suitable for high temperature applications.

Fuse 1 Build Chamber - Fuse 1 consumables

Build Chamber

A key component of the process, the build chamber contains the powder of the material you are printing by keeping the sintered parts and unsintered powder contained during printing.

After the job is complete seamlessly transfer the build chamber to the sift were you can begin part extraction. Having a spare build chamber allows you to run a new job straight after the previous job boosting efficiency and reducing lead times. Get you additional build chamber here.

Powder Cartridge

Load the powder cartridge with your printing powder in the Fuse Sift before adding it into the Fuse 1 hopper. We recommend having two of these to improve efficiency and reducing lead times. Get your additional powder cartridge here.

Fuse 1 and Sift Work area

Prepare your workspace

Fuse 1: 149.5 × 125.5 × 187.0 cm 

The Fuse 1 footprint is 68.5 × 64.5 × 107.0 cm  165.5 cm with stand. Leave at least 20.0 cm to the left of the printer and 61.0 cm to the front and right of the printer for access and place at least 20.0 cm from nearby walls.

Fuse Sift: 221.1 × 122.0 × 218.0 cm

The Fuse Sift footprint is 99.1 × 61.0 × 188.8 cm Leave at least 61 cm to the left, front, and right of the unit for access. Again place the Fuse Sift at least 20.0 cm from any nearby walls.

Don’t overlap with the Fuse 1 access footprint by more than 30.5 cm.

Fuse Sift - post-processing process

Fuse Sift

The Fuse Sift is used as part of the post-processing stage of the SLS process. Designed to be easy-to-use, the Sifts modular design simplifies the process of using the build chamber for part extraction, powder reclamation and refilling.

No other SLS system on the market provides the same level of functionality from one machine. A negative air pressure system keeps the powder within the Sift keeping your workspace clean and tidy. To find out more click here.
