Hi everyone,

I plan to get a prototype part for an RC Car printed soon, in WSF, and I had a question regarding the strength of the material.

The WSF parts are porous, so it wouldn't be as strong as say a solid extruded bar of the same material, so it matters whether the data of the material are from a solid bar or from material samples that were actually produced with an SLS printer.

I read through the datasheet, but to me it's not completely clear whether the tensile strength is of the material itself, or the material when processed through the SLS process. So does anyone know this?

PS: Here are some images of the part - it's a block to which a suspension arm mounts on a Tamiya Dyna Storm.
