The composite powders in SLS formed the ceramic bil⁃ lets，and the ceramic billet sintering atmosphere and siliconizing processing，making it react with matrix sintering，eventually forming a complex ceramic profiled. When the laser power，scanning velocity， scanning spacing，layer thickness are 8 W，2 000 mm / s，0.1 mm，0.15 mm respectively，the SLS parts have the highest relative density and strength. SLS specimen were degreased and high temperature sili⁃ conizing processed reasonably，the bending strength of SiC ceramics sintered parts reached 81 MPa，and the relative density is greater than 86% after high temperature siliconizing process.
