Introducing SLS-HR

SLS-HR is our coined description for High Resolution Selective Laser Sintering. All parts are processed with full digital scanning engine delivering precise laser beam diameter of 450 microns to the powder bed. Our proprietary processing parameters utilizes scan techniques from SLA or Stereolithography. Additional thermal tuning and layer thickness control  have been optimized. The results are improved surface resolution and mechanical properties.

Select Materials

The benefits of SLS are amazing.  This powder bed fusion technology requires no support structures allowing freedom of design with part properties comparable to injection molding. However, the technology is not for the faint at heart. This complex array of thermal and laser energy with variations in powder requires constant monitoring and validation of the process. This is why we are selective in our material choices. PA12 Nylon meets most applications while newly introduced PBT fills high temperature needs.

Prototype to Production

Once your design is complete, you can be assured our SLS-HR process will provide the best quality and performance for functional design validation. Moving into production is as easy as 1, 10, 100, 1000 or 10000. No tooling is required for additive manufacturing with on demand production capabilities. Varia 3D also offers standard resolution SLS at lower cost where iso-tropic properties and fully density are not required. Give us an opportunity to price match your injection molding quotation.


Established in 2014, Varia 3D is a service bureau based near Austin in the Heart of Texas. Austin is known as a 3D printing hub with many of the world's leading additive manufacturing companies. Our staff has years of 3D printing experience beginning in the earliest days of the industry.

We provide rapid prototyping and manufacturing services utilizing SLS or Selective Laser Sintering technology that was developed at the University of Texas in the late 1980's. Today, we have further optimized the process creating SLS-HR. 


Varia 3D offers bulk pricing discounts including white label services for our customers. Whether you are looking for prototypes or production quantities of 10000 units, Varia 3D's expertise will guide you every step of the way.
