3D printed jewelry is not just a matter of technology. The newer cohorts of jewelry designers entering the industry have started becoming familiar and acquainted with 3D Designing Softwares and training on 3D printers, as opposed to the traditional ones.
With 3D printing, jewelry designers are able to produce designs that would be incredibly difficult to hand carve in the traditional manner. The traditional processes would have their own limitations in terms of design and time and ofcourse the cost. For a jewelry part to be made by the “ Karigar” or “ Babu” would involve a timeline of 7-10 days and some scope of tolerances still expected. But via the modern day “CAD-CAM” processes, the timelines are much reduced to barely 2-3 days and with much higher accuracy and no scope of re-work involved.
The production of jewelry is one industry that has embraced 3D Printing. 3D printing is now used to create the patterns for investment casting and to print jewelry directly.
Jeweller and customer can discuss the design together, and an hour later, the customer can hold and try on a real, physical model of the ring. . Also any form of customization is possible without any conditions on the quantity required.
Moving from design to production is easier and faster, as hand carving a precious one-off is no longer a requirement. The try-on pieces can be tailored based on the customer’s requests, 3D printed again, and then manufactured with lost-wax casting, which translates to a considerable reduction in the cost of making customized 3D printed jewelry.
