3D-printed gold industry
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 by conventional means.”
Dean says it has been much slower to print 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 natural mental processes.” make a flexible and more accurate ornament. 3D printed gold designs can be custom fit and beneficial for small businesses. Using 3D printing can save wax casting. It will also be cost-saving and efficient.
