Jewelry typically requires three main figures that are central in developing prototypes that match the desired end product:
- Fine details are necessary to correctly depict the desired product, due to the typically small size of Jewelry products.
- Smooth surfaces of the prototypes are essential. The main reason for this is to appreciate the beauty of the part and to be able to undertake post-processing (such as silicon molding, jewelry molds using VLT rubber process, and others).
- Tolerance is vital when producing prototypes for the Jewelry market as parts are small and require the matching of the CAD drawing to be almost perfect to the desired product. With Stratasys PolyJet technology’s ability to 3D print thin layer thickness of 16µ, it is able to produce an exceptional smooth surfacing with high printing accuracy prototype.
