Video: Shapeways' New Material Alumide

Shapeways recently added the Alumide material for 3D printing. This is a video that shows how it looks.

Alumide is a 3D printing material made of mixing a polyamide powder with aluminum. The resulting material can be used for Selective Laser Sintering machines.

The material is rigid and has a very eye catching quality in sunlight. In this video we show you some 3D printed models made with the alumide material. The models include a mini ferris wheel 3D printed out of one single piece and a ball bearing. Apologies for the rather "home made" quality of the video.
