Good morning Michel,

By any chance, do you have the mail contact of Tim Gornet? If I understood
well, he is operating an adapted SLS machine, correct? You see, besides Ian,
I'm also interested in trying something like that.

Thanks for the tip.

Hello rp-ml - hope you are all well and Happy New Year of the Rooster

It is a long, long time since I sent a mail here. Mainly because rp-ml
sending back my messages. Hopefully, my resubscription has sorted this

Anyway, what I wanted to know was whether any of you have adapted their
machine to handle small powder volumes. I recall someone mentioning they

had done this by reducing the powder bed size (using a mask), and
restricting the feed chambers. Unfortunately, I cant remember who it was

had done this. Can anyone get back to me on this?
