Metallisation of the SLS DuraformAt Loughborough University we have done
some work with Sean Wise at Repliform, Maryland, USA to assess the effects
of electroplating SLA and SL parts.
With regard to SLS (duraform) electroplating helped to smooth the surface
finish and keyed well with the part surface. Significant increases in
tensile properties (up to 4X) were recorded with thicker layers of copper
and nickel. An outline of the results was presented at the SLS user group
meeting in Orlando last September.

  Does anyone have any experience with metallisation of the Duraform
material and the SLS prototyping system?
