Why do SLS printed parts shrink?

SLS printed parts may shrink due to the following reasons:

● High Temperatures: During printing, parts are exposed to high temperatures, causing some shrinkage as they cool.

● Material Contraction: The sintering process involves heating and cooling, which can lead to material contraction or shrinking.

● Internal Stresses: As layers are added and cooled, internal stresses can develop, leading to shrinkage.
