Some of the silver jewelry pendants I ordered are finally starting to arrive, would love to know what you think. I'm quite happy with the result, and unlike with gold-plating I love how smooth the finish is.

Top two images are photos, the bottom closeup is a rendering.

Thanks! It's amazing to see such delicate silver objects come from the printer. As the technology improves i'm sure the smoothness and resolution of 3d-printed jewelry will only get more impressive....

Not all the smoothness can be attributed to the printers. Silver prints are printed in wax, then cast in silver. Which is why they are smoother than stainless with is a fused powder.

Very nice results, the silver is very soft, so it shouldn't be an issue getting an emery cloth in there to give it a nice shiny polish.

Hey Saad, this is gorgeous! Did you do polished on unpolished silver here? Can't quite tell from the pics..

Will you be bringing it to the NY meetup tomorrow night?

Thanks Ana Smile
I selected Polished Silver when I ordered, but I'm going to try to polish it some more to see if I can get it even smoother.

There are a few more pics of it in my shop:

I'll definitely bring it along with some other models to the meetup tomorrow.

Cheers,

I know the first image in your second message is the real model (and looks nice) but surelythe last image in your first message is a render?
