What is the refresh rate?
It is the ratio of a minimum amount of fresh powder needed in a mixture of material used in an SLS 3D printer. A lower refresh ratio means better cost-efficiency of the material.
How it works
The amount of needed fresh powder is automatically calculated by our software and shown on the printer screen after the print job is finished. Just add shown amount of material into the mixing cycle of used material and you can start your next job with refreshed material.

The main reason Somfy reached out for the SLS technology from Sinterit was productivity. Printing many pieces in one batch was a game-changer
When we look at Lisa’s line of printers, or Sinterit at general compared to other companies, the two major things that we liked were the materials, that are open source, so we are not locked into one brand, the materials that may have supply chain issues or just very high pricing because of some unique material. We are able to look around the market and use a material that works best for the part.
Another thing was how good the customer service has been. We were quite happy with all the support we received for Lisa Pro. When we were looking for a bigger printer we had a good experience, with no complaints, so it was a very painless upgrade for us for Lisa X
It was the best choice for me to fulfill all requirements: possibility to print complex structures, price, speed, reliability.
Sinterit LISA is the most accessible means to produce precise constraint-free solutions to modern problems. The technology does what it says on the tin and the team at Sinterit is dedicated to working with their customers to achieve their objectives.
For a company at the beginning of an investigation, support from, and discussion with the technology experts is extremely beneficial. The LISA is one of the few economically feasible solutions in the first stages of any AM Strategy. At lower volumes, it is a perfect solution.
The FFF and SLA parts are a good choice to get a physical impression of the designs and to assemble rough prototypes. But when it comes to producing reliable prototypes to be verified in our fatigue tests or to send functional samples to our customers for validation, SLS is the only acceptable choice.
The print quality of the Lisa PRO is impressive.
In order to keep up with our production demand, we have been operating the Lisa PRO almost 7 days a week for the past couple of months, without incident, and produced over 1500 sleeves.
Cost-efficent rigid polyamide. Best surface quality
Great mechanical and impact resistance. High elongation at break
ESD material for cases. Bio-sourced material
One of the strongest and most versatile materials available on the powder market dedicated to SLS printing technology
A high resistance nylon 12 with very good dimensioning accuracy of prints
Rubber material for prototypes. Standard material for TPU parts.
Softest material for SLS. Pleasant-to-touch rubber
Visual prototypes can be dyed. Best elongation rubber
New TPU with high strength and flexibility, ideal for use in gaskets, flexible joint covers, vibration dampers
The differences between the powders are described in the table below.
In Sinterit we distinguish three powder conditions: print
SLS polyamide powder used for 3D printing is considered particulate matter because of its size. Polyamide powder particles are generally 40 micrometers or smaller. If vacuumed in an ordinary vacuum cleaner, the powder could cause an explosion.
Such materials are subject to labor regulations on air quality and occupational safety. The procedures call for appropriate maintenance of powder at work. Only certified industrial vacuum cleaners should be used to clean such materials. More information about the ATEX Vacuum cleaner can be found here.
