The Role of 3D Printing in Jewelry Manufacturing

  • Wax 3D Printer Jewelry Parts on Platform
  • Lost Wax Casting

    Reveal your most creative jewelry designs faster and increase productivity without compromising quality. Our solutions for 3D printed jewelry casting patterns fit with your standard process for reliable output every time, bringing you maximum design freedom for high-volume and mass custom jewelry manufacturing.

  • 3D printed Mold Making parts for jewelry
  • Mold Making

    Leverage 3D Systems solutions developed for compatibility with jewelry mold making processes for high-volume manufacturing. 3D print ultra-high-detail, heat-resistant, high-quality, complex master patterns to create your rubber mold in a matter of hours.

  • Prototyping

    Accelerate creativity with accurate, finely detailed, high-fidelity prototypes. Our solutions provide a quick turnaround from digital designs to 3D printed jewelry models, allowing for fast design iteration, validation, stone settings, and try-on.

Addressing All Your Jewelry Design Challenges with 3D Printing

Every jewelry style has its own design and production challenges. Our 3D jewelry manufacturing solutions provide a competitive advantage, with the high quality, accuracy, and reliability required for every design style.

With features such as thin wires, twisted pipes, and ornate surfaces, sharpness and fine details are critical.

Our 3D printing solutions for prototyping, casting and rubber molding patterns deliver high-resolution and fine details down to 0.2 mm.

These designs require the ability to produce hollow, lightweight filigree and thin wire mesh shapes.

Our solutions for castable plastic or 100% wax pattern production deliver the capabilities required for these highly detailed pieces.

Pavé and Stone Setting

Single, multiple, and pavé stone designs—some including micro-prongs with gaps as small as 0.2 mm—require accurate patterns and a superior surface finish.

From functional prototyping and stone setting validation, to patterns for direct casting or rubber molding, our 3D jewelry printing solutions deliver parts with the high accuracy, smooth finish, and fine details required for even the smallest prongs.

“It’s totally doable with today’s technology to receive a ring order in the morning, get it on the printer in the afternoon, cast it the next day, and ship for delivery the following day—72 hours from order to delivery. I could push that further: We could install printers all over the globe and feed them from our server. We could then solve the problem of international shipping for a high-value product.”
