Can't figure out why my design isn't available in Alumide

    Hey guys, I have a small part that I need printed in Alumide, but it doesn't seem to be an option, even though it seems to be within the parameters. Can anyone tell me if I'm missing something?

    Thanks,

    -Shawn

    Your model may be within the parameters of Alumide, however for some materials the bounding box that encloses your model must have all sides more than 2.5mm, you model is just under half this on one axis. the solution is to rotate the mesh relative to the axis. Realigned model attached which has Alumide as an option :)
