Alumide is perhaps the most underrated 3D printing material. Often mistaken for aluminum or seen as the little brother of polyamide, alumide gets little attention as a 3D printing material. However, alumide is a material with a great look & feel and offers you a lot of design freedom.
Let’s take a look at 5 outstanding alumide 3D prints in this blog post.
It’s no secret that we have a soft spot for brass, and we aren’t the only ones. We can count so many examples of jewelry designers and makers who have surprised us with their exciting brass creations.
When it comes to materials for 3D printing jewelry, brass is a great option for many reasons and we want you to know them all!
For many people, 3D printing just means prototypes and industrial designs, but at i.materialise we’re well aware that this is not true! For us, 3D printing is synonymous with creativity, art, design and even fashion.
3D printing can be used for the design of a beautiful kettle, to create incredible pieces of jewelry, or such as in this case, to bring a pair of dream shoes to life!
We love the possibility of 3D printing in precious metals: silver, brass, bronze or even gold are some of our most popular materials with jewelry designers. But it’s worth discovering these other unusual materials which can also be perfect for 3D printing jewelry.
3D printing allows us to dream. Not just because the freedom of design it enables is limitless, but because it’s a good way to test out our ideas and designs in the real world. This is especially useful for product designers like Elia Furgiele.
If you believe that all 3D printers use filaments, and terms like Stereolithography, Laser Sintering and PolyJet Printing cause you headaches, then this blog post is for you. In this post, we’ll give you an overview of the essential 3D printing technologies and 3D printing materials that are currently used on an industrial level.
Working in such a dynamic sector like 3D printing, it’s normal that the members of the Materialise team are always exploring the creative side of 3D printing and discovering all its possibilities.
This story is a good example of how we use every excuse to get creative with 3D printing.
Are we obsessed with 3D printing? Maybe, but it’s just so much fun!
One of the main advantages of 3D printing is the benefits that it offers for mass customization.
Thanks to 3D printing technologies, the possibility of personalizing objects to make them unique has become much easier and that’s exactly what the Space Time Coordinates project is about.
3D design can be somewhat intimidating if you have never used 3D design software before. At i.materialise, we love getting newcomers to 3D printing started in this fascinating world. That’s why today we’re bringing you a 3D design tutorial for beginners.
