actually emil, dtm and eos are the only ones that provide selective
laser sintering technology, or anything even close. technically though,
dtm is the exclusive provider of sls, which is a patented technology
under a trademarked name. although the eos technology is similar, there
are, as you may know, some "patent issues". anyway, soligen uses a
liscense of mit's 3d printing technology to spray a binder into a
substrate of ceramic powder-quite different.

if you need more information, check out dtm's excellent web page at
