Material-Details: Aluminium AlSi10Mg Datasheet


Aluminium AlSi10Mg is moulded in the DLM. This means that the component is clean, free of voids or inclusions and 99.8% solid.
Die Eigenschaften dieses Werkstoffes lassen sich mit denen eines gefräßten Bauteiles vergleichen.
The properties of this material allow are comparable with those of an alluminum component.
Especially in lightweight construction this is, in any case, light, Material, print very well in lightweight forms, without cutting or welding is necessary.Thus also vulnerabilities and elaborate weld be avoided when lightweight parts made of aluminium. Some of the Airbus planes and rockets of the NASA flying already with serial manufactured 3D printed parts made from aluminum.

Advantages & disadvantages

  • Stability of alluminum material
  • Extremely abrasion resistant
  • Detailed and extremely clean in printing
  • Very good permanent availability
  • Stainless steel
  • Freedom of form
  • compressed air and water pressure sealing
  • Temperature resistant
  • Design freedom by supporter of free printing
  • relative expensive

Price calculation

Aluminum can be calculated automatically.
If it is rather difficult to calculate. Simply use our calculation tool.

  • 15 Handling per part
  • 10,50 € / cm³
  • 0,50 € / cm³ the bounding box ( Formula: X x Y x Z [in cm] x 0,5)
  • 0,70 € / cm² (Surface of the part)

Typical usage

Aluminium is usually used to make lightweight parts. The comparably cheap production Interestingly etc. but also for figures.



Aluminum is produced in the DLM. DLM means direct laser melting and referred to it directly by melting metal powder to a component.
There will be no further processing steps unless requires the separation of the print.
The material is subjected to resolve tensions after printing a heat treatment.

The procedure:

Your model is decomposed in the Computer into layers and sent to the the machine.
Now, a printing bed with exactly this thickness is filled with metal powder. A very strong laser now merges the powder at the locations where your part is to be built.
This occurs under a protective atmosphere of argon or nitrogen.
This process is repeated until your component is manufactured.
The remaining powder is sucked off and cut your part of manuel from the base plate.
As "Finish", your part in a heat treatment furnace comes to anneal it.

Additional information

  • On request can be "printed" on existing metal parts. Thus: fixed extensions are possible.
    This requires a flat ground surface.

Priority service

There is unfortunately no Priority service for aluminium.



The surface of your model is determined by the technology and the chosen material. Therefore, we offer several post-processing steps. This affects the cost but also the quality of your model.

Painted models

Painted 3D printing


Of course, you can also paint ABS 3D models.
Here, the quality and RAL color can be chosen. The basic version of the painting is a simple Spray Paint.
This means that your component is easily sanded and then painted. Stage of construction, and the similar are still easily recognizable.
The highest quality level is the paint in premium (car paint) quality. For this purpose must be booked "polishing".
Your part is sanded, polished, gefllert, wet sanded and painted.

  • Need a minimum dimensions of 10x10x10mm
  • Price: 30% of the part price for base coating. Polishing service Additionally for premium (+ 30%).
  • Painting 2 Design specifications must be set extra.





Coating of 3D printing


Aluminum parts can also make a wonderful coating.
For this purpose, your model is ground and then coated with your desired material. Here also a coating with as gold or silver is possible

  • We can only coat the parts of 10 x 10 x 10 mm up to 600 x 600 x 600 mm. Larger parts on request.
  • Handling flat rate 12 / order
  • Hand galvanizing
  • Order thickness from 1 m
