Jewelry typically requires three main figures that are central in developing prototypes that match the desired end product.
Firstly, fine details are necessary to correctly depict the desired product, due to the typically small size of Jewelry products.
Secondly, the issue of smooth surfaces of the prototype becomes of central importance. The main reason for this is to appreciate the beauty of the part, but also to be able to undertake post-processing (such as silicon molding, jewelry molds using VLT rubber process, and others).
Lastly, tolerance is vital when producing prototypes for the Jewelry market as parts are small and need to match almost perfectly the CAD drawing of the desired product. With PolyJet technology’s thin layer thickness of 16µ, its exceptional smooth surfacing, and its printing accuracy, Stratasys & Objet’s offers a solid and highly compelling solution.
