This paper investigates fabrication of functional thick-film components using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). We demonstrated that SLS has exciting potentials for thick-film metallization of low-temperature substrates. The DC conductivity of laser sintered components is measured for a range of laser scan speeds and powers. The quality of metallization at microwave frequencies is evaluated by comparing the measured Q to simulations. The effects of processing parameters on the quality of components are investigated through a heat transfer analysis of the laser sintering process. Optimum properties of the fabricated components are obtained when proper thermal conditions are achieved during laser heating.
