Alumide is a grey material which consists of polyamide and aluminium. It is metallic, durable and easily workable, and has good stiffness and tensile properties.

Alumide is suitable for very detailed models. A model manufactured from it can be finished by grinding, which makes it shiny and metallic. The material can also be machined and surface-treated with paint, for example.

Alumide is suitable, among others, for machinery parts and applications where heat resistance is required. It is also well-suited for purposes where a metallic appearance is desired.


  • applications that require metallic appearance and workability
  • parts that require heat resistance
  • manufacturing processes in motor industry
  • facsimile models

Equipment – plastic 3D printing

High-quality industrial equipment makes 3D printing a reliable and accurate process. We run several high-quality EOS 3D printers for plastic production. The high-quality machinery manufactures products with good surface quality and high accuracy directly from digital CAD files within just a couple of hours.

We can always guarantee a high-quality and timely production, and deliver even larger series of printed materials fast and reliably. The EOS industrial model printers print high-quality 3D products rapidly and cost-effectively using a laser sintering method. They can produce even the most complex models individually and in detail. The printing accuracy is extremely good and the surface quality of the models is very high.

Post-processing and finishing parts professionally

In addition to 3D printing itself, we are an overall partner in additive manufacturing. Dyemansion Powershot C+ S is the leading blasting system for end-use parts with a superior finish. We at 3D Formtech can post-process parts for example with:


With chemical colouring device Dyemansion DM60 the 3D prints can be given a finishing touch for the end user or for marketing purposes. Colouring gives the workpiece UV protection and the high-quality result is very durable. Thousands of different colours are available.


With the help of thin-film coating, 3D printouts become waterproof. Coated pieces can therefore be used outdoors and everywhere where contact with water or other liquids might happen. The thin-film coating is safe to use.


The maximum dimensions of the printouts are 340 x 340 x 600 mm.

Printing volume: 200 mm x 230 mm x 330 mm

Print speed: 10-20 mm/h
