It is melted in the second step of the process. See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9VOwqtOglg

If you're asking why its not sintered - well, because that process costs about 10x as much!


If you're new to 3D printing, learn the secrets from a professional. Get my book "3D Printing with SketchUp"
