Many of the things I design are so complex that they would not be possible using traditional techniques, and I love how 3D printing takes jewelry design to the next level.
I was always limited to jewelry supplies and designs that were available on the market. I was never able to really design and create my own pieces. 3D printing changed all that!
Shapeways is easy to work with, and has the quality level and price that gives me the freedom to realize my creations in the way I want to.
Such an amazing way to bring your design into reality.
When picking materials for your model, think about how the material will help to position it as a product. Is it an exclusive piece that you want to only offer in Premium Silver? Or a versatile design that looks great in a range of materials and price points?
When you create an object with Shapeways, the order price is primarily determined by the actual printed material volume. An easy way to save some moneyâ??sometimes a LOT of moneyâ??is by making your object hollow. This short tutorial will explain the basics of hollow objects for 3D printing with Shapeways.
Shapeways only charges you for the amount of material you use. Thereâ??s no penalty for complexity or the bounding box of your model. This makes some products, like spectacles and jewelry, seem surprisingly inexpensive, while it makes other products more expensive. Here are three tricks to optimize your design for the lowest-cost 3D printing.
Like many of our printer technologies, our Full Color Sandstone printers work by laying down thin layers of powder and selectively binding this powder together to produce solid parts. Unlike our other printer technologies, this printer also uses a set of CMYK printheads to color the part while binding the powder together to produce the colorful solid parts.
