Polyamide can be used for complex models, concept models, small series of models (several copies of a model), lamps, and functional models. This technique allows the greatest freedom of design of all 3D printing techniques.
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.
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. Polyamide is part of our basic sample kit. Available for 30 EUR with a 25 EUR voucher included.
Polyamide priority gets your 3D prints faster. If you choose this option, we will 3D print your design within 48 hours*. Add 1 working day for Dyed or Polished natural white finish and 2 working days for Polish and Dyed.
Normally, most of our orders are shipped out within 6-10 working days. However, more and more people are requesting a faster way to get their 3D prints, especially when they are dealing with deadlines. So, we will 3D print your design within 48 hours and ship it. The shipping time depends on where you live. Let’s explain this with an example. If you order before 12:00 CET on a Monday we will produce your order within 48 hours and ship it Wednesday. If you’re in the UK, Belgium, France, the Netherlands or Germany your order should be delivered on Thursday. If you’re in a US major city you should also get it on Thursday. Major Asian cities will get their orders on Friday.
* If you order before 12:00 CET, then we will ship the second day following the day of your order.
Weekends and holidays needs to be added to the printing days.
A model in Polyamide Priority natural white ordered after 12:00 CET Thursday ships on Tuesday evening, orders after 12:00 CET on a Friday or anything ordered on Saturday and Sunday, will be shipped Wednesday evening
