Below, we’ll guide you through some of the different manufacturing methods available on the 3DCompare on-demand manufacturing platform so you know which one is right for you:
3D Printing jewelry
You would be forgiven for thinking 3D printing was designed for jewelry making – the technology is perfect for highly personalized and intricately detailed designs, with many jewellers opting to use 3D printing to offer incredibly unique pieces of jewelry, or to create patterns for investment casting. Various methods of additive manufacturing, from SLA to DMLS, are available to create tailored jewelry items on the 3DCompare platform. Using 3D printing, we can guarantee to provide you with a customized piece of jewelry according to your design with quick turnaround time, thanks to 3D printing’s fast production capabilities. With prices starting from as little as $10, we can get 1-150 3D printed pieces of jewelry ready for you from 1-3 days, with further post-processing options available.
Metal Casting jewelry
The traditional method of making jewelry – principally done through the pouring of a liquid metal alloy into a casting mould. The casting mould is created by melting a wax model to leave a hollow chamber in the middle, in the shape of the desired object – a technique referred to as a lost-wax casting. Adopted for thousands of years by jewellers, metal casting allows for the precise reproduction of original jewelry pieces. 3DCompare offers metal casting services so you can create jewelry using a method that has been championed throughout history, ensuring reliability.
CNC Machining jewelry
The casting patterns to create pieces of jewelry in moulds of wax are often carved out by hand in the metal casting method. Using CNC machining, you can create a wax copy of a jewelry piece to allow for a more complex and precise geometry to be produced compared to a hand-carved piece, with faster operating time using a CAD file. You can also CNC machine end-use pieces of jewelry, creating bracelets, pendants and earrings from a block of material. With this method, you are able to reduce the cost and time required for metal casting, as well as enabling extra design advantages with particular details.
