Streamline your prototyping process and reduce costs

3D printing allows jewellery designers to innovate at a fraction of the cost of traditional prototyping methods. Resin based printers using DLP or laser technologies use stereolithography to create high resolution and castable samples.

3D printing adds new ways to create jewellery. Direct castable resins allow you to create vulcanized rubber molds. The mold is then used with wax, like in the traditionnal methods. The rest of the manufacturing process stays the same.

With 3D printing, you add new methods in the process of creating jewellery, but do not lose the human element. The jeweller still expresses his talent int the design of the piece and in the process of producing jewellery.

  • Quick and easy prototyping
  • Perfect for details and surface inspection
  • Castable prints
  • DLP or LASER technology to solidify resin

Benefits of 3D printing

 

Rely on dependable results for production

Once you create the 3D file of your jewellery, it contains all the information to produce perfect prints. You can produce as many pieces as you want for each design. With 3D printing in your manufacturing process, you can guarantee large scale production and large scale customisation.

Modify files easily

With a 3D file, you can easily apply modifications. You can print a plastic prototype of your jewellery to check the quality of your design. Then edit the file in a 3D modelling software to create the final version. Your final piece can be casted in the metal of your choice.

 

 

Print high resolution details

3D printers can now achieve unsurpassed surface smoothness and part precision, making them perfect tools for jewellers. With printers capable of a few tens of microns precision, the results are incredibly defined.

Reduce costs

With 3D printing, prototyping has never been so easy. 3D printers can create hard resin jewellery prototypes, perfect for fitting. Adjust the last details and cast the final jewellery in metal. With 3D printing prototyping, design improvements and production are cheaper and faster than ever.
