What do you mean by a custom powder bed? There was some work done by a few to modify an existing Sinterstation so that it could process smaller amounts of powder. At HKU we also modified a laser engraving machine to process powders so that we could print inks into it. Is that what you are planning or something different?

Has anyone tried to build a custom powder bed for layer manufacturing or found a ready to implement solution on the market? Any information on the matter or point to the right direction would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
