Learn how an Austrian goldsmith incorporated the Form 2 and Castable Wax into his 3D printing workflow to achieve the highest quality of prints.
The way jewelers work is changing, and castable photopolymer resins are leading the way. From independent designers concepting and prototyping in their studios, to casting houses increasing capacity and diversifying their offerings, digital fabrication techniques are increasingly key to growing a successful jewelry business. In this guide, learn how to cast fine jewelry pieces from patterns 3D printed on the Form 2.
The tools of digital modeling and printing have become an integral part of the jewelry industry. Whether you are a designer 3D printing a resin maquette to review with your client, or an artist or manufacturer producing finished pieces from digital designs, understanding and working with digital technology is essential.
Vulcanized rubber molds are used to produce wax models in quantity for investment casting of metal parts such as jewelry. Making master patterns for molding by 3D printing with high-performance materials allows designers and casters to leverage digital technology in their production processes.
