Models made in Aluminum are printed in Aluminum powder that is sintered together by a laser to produce end-use metal parts that are as equally good as machined models. 3D printed Aluminum doesn’t look like the traditional shiny milled aluminum. Instead it’s a bit grayer and more matte with a slightly rougher and less defined surface. Models in Aluminum are very strong, precise and can have feature size as small as 0.25 mm.

Pricing Info

The pricing for Aluminum is based on:

  • Model volume: The volume of your model is used to calculate the material cost (mm³)
  • The box around your model: An imaginary box around your model determines how much space your design will take up in the printer (X * Y * Z = mm³)
  • Model surface 

For Aluminum, 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.  

Typical Use

Aluminum can be used for full functional parts, spare parts and jewelry.



Metal 3D Printing – also known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and Select Laser Melting (SLM) – is a laser-based technology that uses powdered metals. Similar to Laser Sintering, a high-powered laser selectively binds together particles on the powder bed while the machine distributes even layers of metallic powder. Support structures are automatically generated and built simultaneously in the same material and are later manually removed. Once complete, the part undergoes heat treatment.

Additional Information

  • This is a Trial Material. Since it’s experimental, design rules or pricing can be subject to change as we learn more about this material.
  • It's possible to make non-rectangular, organically shaped objects that are not able to be produced by any other process.
  • Because supports have to be removed manually, some evidence of removed support structures might remain on your model.
  • Any “overhanging” structures such as the bottom of a table built with this process will tend to be unattractive.
  • Any angles less steep than 35° will tend to be less attractive with this process.
  • The most ideal shape to make with this process is that of a “mesh with holes”. This makes it easy to design with this process and delivers the best results.

Sample Kit

Learning about our materials is one thing, seeing and touching them another. That's why we've designed sample kits based on our Periodic Table of Materials.
