New 3D printers change the game for jewellery design


Jewellery firms are being invited to see what the future of 3D jewellery design looks like by attending the TCT show in Birmingham this week.

Billed as the UK’s main 3D print show, the event, which takes place at the NEC on Wednesday and Thursday, is free to attend.

Graham Dicks from GVUK Design, UK distributor for EnvisionTEC, said: “Resins are proving to be a significant part of what 3D printers can do, from body-parts to fine jewellery, carbon fibre to direct casting.”

He urged industry professionals to go attend the show, adding: “Come along and see how one single desktop printer can print super-fine jewellery samples for direct casting and prototypes in anything from minutes to overnight. The new range of printers has become an essential tool for any workshop, bureau or design team.”

The latest resin Q-View allows retailers to print samples off in minutes to test and visualise, which GVUK claims is the perfect way to close a sale. The company claims that with the new direct-cast resin EC3000 it is possible to see a surface finish superior to any other brand of 3D printer.

GVUK added: “With an average running cost of £1-£3, a ring EnvisionTEC has become an essential tool to save not just time but money too.”
