Wax 3D Printing Helps Uptown Diamond Craft A Gem

Traditional jewelry design is a meticulous and incremental process. Because labor and materials are a large investment for both the jeweler and the customer, traditional design begins with an artist’s sketch for the customer to inspect. Once the sketch is approved, it is carved out of wax and re-inspected before casting. If the wax mold is not close enough to the original sketch or fails to meet the customer’s expectations in any other way, it must be redone, or else the customer loses confidence, and the jeweler loses business. Either way, a large amount of time is put into this process, which typically spans anywhere from two to three weeks.

3D Systems inventor of 3D printing can showcase how customers are using its end-to-end additive manufacturing solutions to optimize designs, enhance workflows and bring products to market faster.

The MJP 3D printer produces micro-detail wax patterns with outstanding surface quality and extremely fine features, ideal for intricate direct investment casting applications, such as jewelry. Compatible with VisiJet® RealWax™ materials, the wax 3D printer produces precise, mirror standard wax casts within a build platform of up to 11.75 x 7.2 x 8 in (298 x 183 x 203 mm) for increased productivity.
