How accurate is SLM 3D printing?

SLM 3D printing is known for its high level of accuracy and precision. The dimensional accuracy of parts produced by SLM can typically reach ± 0.1 mm, which is quite precise for metal additive manufacturing. Additionally, the layer height in SLM can be as fine as 30-60μm, allowing for detailed and intricate designs.

However, the exact accuracy can depend on several factors, including the machine’s calibration, the complexity of the part, and the material used. It’s also important to consider the tolerances specific to the SLM process, such as potential shrinkage and the minimum feature size that can be achieved.

Overall, SLM 3D printing offers a highly accurate and versatile solution for creating metal parts with complex geometries and fine details, making it suitable for applications where precision is critical.
