Different types of jewelry requires an assortment of 3D printing methods and material. Our XHD Frosted materials is great for the silicon mold method, while our 100% wax enables very complex geometry and uses the lost cast casting process. We also provide castable resins for some jewelers that require a finished product before the casting process.
As jewelers become more aware of different 3D printing processes and materials they also learn how to take advantage of the cost differences. Techniques like hollowing, shelling, or 3D printing at higher resolutions can reduce smoothing and buffing times helping to reduce materiel or labor costs.
