Selective laser sintering (SLS) is a rapid prototype process that creates objects, layer by layer, using infrared laser beams to process powder materials [1–8]. In recent years, the SLS process has shown great prominence in the medical field, and several researchers have conducted studies showing a wide diversity of materials and applications, such as the manufacture of porous drug delivery devices (DDDs) [9–12].
