Laser sintering is a generative layer manufacturing technology. Any three-dimensional geometry can be built effectively and flexibly, without any tools or laborious milling path programming. During production, the 3D CAD model is sliced into layers. EOS's innovative laser-sintering technology then builds the required geometry layer by layer. The energy of a laser solidifies powder-based materials, for example plastic, metal or foundry sand. The laser-sintering process allows for the production of several different parts in one single build job. For more information, visit EOS Electro Optical Systems.

Dear Sirs: the sintering machine via laser, is SO COOL! I know Jay Leno (Entertainer, car builder/collector/restorer) uses some similar type of machine to build "un-obtainable" replacements to keep his almost 200 different cars running/maintained. Could parts as strong as forgings be made(--as in one-off small sets of rods used for race/other hi-performance IC-engines)? Why is there a limitation of only 10" or so in height? There might be applications where one wanted to do an engine-block that would have a height of way more than 10", yet would need a "one-off technology (--as in a marine diesil powering a cruise ship/oil tanker/military aircraft-carrier/cruiser/other?
