Alumide models are constructed from a blend of polyamide and a very low percentage of gray aluminum powder. Alumide is a strong, somewhat rigid plastic material that can take small impacts and resist some pressure while being bent. The surface has a sandy, granular look and is slightly porous.

Pricing Info

The pricing for Alumide is based on the volume your models take up in the 3D printing machine. This includes the volume of your models and the surrounding space they require in the printer’s build chamber to ensure a successful print.

For Alumide, we charge a minimum price per ordered piece. Unlike the startup cost (which is applied to most materials), this cost vanishes when the price is higher than the minimum price. And if you order two or more copies of a model, the price automatically decreases because the preparation of multiple copies can be carried out more efficiently.

Typical Use

Alumide can be used for complex models, concept models, small series of models (several copies of a model), and functional models. It is suitable for models that need more stiffness than polyamide models or that require an aluminum look.



Laser sintering is used to build your design with this material. The models are printed layer by layer by a laser that draws thin lines in the powder, which melts and bonds it together in order to form a thin layer of the model. After a layer is printed, a new layer of fresh powder is spread over the surface by a roller. The printer has a print chamber that is heated to just below the melting point of the powder; the laser beam adds the extra energy to melt the powder, forming a solid model. After a print job is finished, the result is a big block of heated powder with the printed models contained inside.

Additional Information

  • Alumide is a material that is perfect for beginning-designers who want a well-priced model, a maximum freedom of creation, and who don’t want to be bothered with the limitations of the printing process.
  • Please note that Alumide is a plastic material filled with a limited amount of aluminum powder particles. The mechanical characteristics are similar to Polyamide. Check the technical specifications tab for more details.
