3D Modeling of Polymer Selective Laser Sintering Process: Laser-Polymer Interaction Modeling

Résumé

During selective laser sintering (SLS) process, the laser transmission in the polymer powder bed and solid polymer is different. The laser interaction with the powder bed splits into absorption, reflection and scattering three parts. The photon scattering between the polymer particles leads laser repeated absorption by particles, changes the photon’s traveling directions, and further influences the temperature distribution at the scanning laser area. New distribution and attenuation coefficients need to be introduced for correcting the results. For better simulating the photons travel ways, we introduce the modified Monte-Carlo method and Mie-Scattering theory to predict laser distribution in the polymer powder bed, by considering the scattering phenomenon. This paper analyses how the initial porosity influences the maximum temperature, laser attenuation rate and porosity change rate. The results show that lower porosity promoting the laser scattering phenomenon, decreasing the maximum temperature and the powder porosity change rate.
