Sharebot SnowWhite is a professional 3D printer with DLS (Direct Laser Sintering) technology: a fast, easy to use working tool dedicated to professionals who test and develop new materials or to people who need to create functioning mechanical prototypes.
Sharebot SnowWhite has a laser of 2.200 mm/s which allows to print at a printing speed of 35 mm/h. The printer uses different thermoplastic powders like PA12 or PA11: all the printing setting can be set and modified through the touch screen display, where the printer also shows all the parameters during the printing process.
The printer can be the perfect laboratory tool to test new powders because it can start working with just 300g of material; it’s also possible to recover all the unused powders. The machine can start printing in just few minutes and it has a low energy consumption while the powder doesn’t suffer any thermal stress.

The aerospace industry is one of the main markets for 3D Printing or Additive Manufacturing. This sector has a long history of early adopters, manufacturers find their needs being fulfilled. Environmental performance restrictions, competitive market conditions and high manufacturing cost are just some of the challenges that aerospace faces today.
The main driver in 3D printing for vehicles is not printing the entire vehicle, but a move to 3D printing tooling and end-use parts. According to SmarTech, prototyping has only penetrated automotive prototyping by 15% to 20%. Ford, for example, has been 3D printing prototypes for over 20 years to decrease design time.
Perhaps the most immediate and life-affirming industries currently benefiting from 3D printing are the medical industries. The most common application may be the use of a patient’s medical imaging data, such as a CT scan, to create a 3D-printed medical model.
Research & Development is a very crucial part of many industries as well as markets, it has its own benefits. Manufacturers and firms need to ensure that their products constantly evolve and meet the ongoing trends, changing market demands, challenging competition, varying consumer requirements and at the same time be cost efficient.
