Alumide is a mixture of nylon and aluminum powders.
It is a durable, slightly flexible material that can support some pressures when curved.
The powders are solidified, layer by layer, by a laser (SLS, selective laser sintering).
This material is more rigid and in some respects more friable than plastic (nylon). The appearance is grainy, porous, but the aluminum powder gives brightness to the surface.
It is ideal for printing objects with moving parts such as joints or hinges and for complex objects.
On a small scale, the thickness of the layers could create a "step" effect.
Maximum printable volume: 310x310x400 mm
Thickness of the layers: 0.15 mm.
Moving parts: Yes
For food: No
Suitable for dishwashers: No
Heat resistant up to 172 ° C
