3D printed Alumide models video

We shot a quick video showing you some of the test models we made for the Alumide material in the sunlight. You get to see Bathsheba’s Bioform & Vorodo,  Virtox’s Gyro the cube & TriMatrix, DeLaVega’s Ball Bearing & ejisfun’s Ferris Wheel. I should really have opened with “we 3D printed a Ferris Wheel.” We’re offering the Alumide material until the 14th of March. The material is polyamide mixed with Aluminum. It is rigid but less strong than White, Strong & Flexible. I think it looks lovely and am sure that Alumide would be Frtiz Lang’s favorite 3D printing material.

    Excellent…can’t wait to see my first models in alumide ;)

    is this material conductive due tithe aluminum? May make it easier to metallize or plate…

      The material is not conductive. It also is very low to take up static electricity. Henk, a community member, tested that in a clean room. It should block RF well but we have not had the time to test that.

      The book cover of G?del, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid has a ‘cube’ made of the letters G E B.
      Project: allow user to choose the letters and print out the ‘cube’
