In 3D Printing

Alumide is a material used in 3D printing consists of nylon filled with aluminium dust, the name derived from combining ‘aluminium’ and ‘polyamide’. These alumide models are constructed from a blend of grey aluminium powder and it is somewhat rigid material which resists some pressure being bent. These techniques can be learn in Nexgen – 3D printing in Chennai.
