According to designer Lionel T Dean, who has created a collection that is 3D printed in 18-carat gold digital manufacturing could “reshape the jewelry industry. “We’re here today to launch our collection of 3D-printed gold artifacts to demonstrate to the UK jewelry industry the potential of 3D printing, Dean explains in the movie. Additive manufacturing with metal allows you to create forms that would be almost impossible to create by conventional means.”
His creation was unveiled in August at Birmingham City University’s School of Jewelry.

3D-printed gold industry, “reshape the jewelry industry,” says designer Lionel T Dean. 🙂

“We’re here today to launch our collection of 3D-printed gold artifacts to demonstrate to the UK jewelry industry the potential of 3D printing,”

“Additive manufacturing with metal allows you to create forms that would be almost impossible to create by conventional means.”

Dean says it has been much slower to take up printing directly with metal. “The jewelry industry was one of the early adopters of additive technology, using it in an indirect sense,” Dean says. “So printing waxes and casting from those waxes. It’s been more reluctant to adopt direct metal processes.”
