My consideration of Alumide is based on the assumption that Alumide will give me - almost - the same features of WSF but will have a much smoother surface. (though I would love to have the finer detail of WSF). As Newbie I am still reading thru the huge knowledge base in this Forum. What I have not yet found is the following: - Is there a level of shrinkage when printing Alumide? - How to colour Alumide objects? - How strong is Alumide really? - does it need to be preserved in any way? Would love to hear feedback from the people who have already used this material - and how it compares to other materials like WSF!
