I have been trying Shapeways for prototyping our jewelry before we send it to mass produce, but my company is speculating about buying our own 3D printer to 3D print the prototypes at our office. For that I have seem that the High detail plastic works well at least to see sizes, shapes, and details before we print them in metal.
Can you guys recommend me some 3D printers that can be useful for this?
I think our main concern is that the detail can be high enough to see the details on small jewelry (rings, fingerrings, bracelets, etc).
Thank you so much in advance!

If you have a SolidScape or Envisiontec machine you could actually print waxes to produce your own patterns.
