The application of 3D printing in the jewelry industry

In recent years, with the rapid development of 3D printing technology, breakthroughs have been made in the innovative application of 3D printing in professional fields such as jewelry, creating favorable opportunities for the personalization and intelligence of the jewelry industry. Today, the global jewelry industry is in a stage of upgrading and transformation, and jewelry sales through traditional channels have been difficult to meet the personalized needs of young consumers. Many young consumers who are chasing trends are keen to show their individuality. Therefore, customizing jewelry according to personal preferences and tastes has become a consumption method for the current young consumer groups.
However, the traditional jewelry manufacturing process has to go through a lot of processes such as plate-making, rubber mold, plastic mold opening, wax injection, mold repair, etc., and the cost of materials, venues, equipment, manpower, and time is relatively large. Due to the limitation of traditional processing technology, many excellent jewelry designs can only stay in concept and cannot be realized. But for 3D printing technology, is just not limited by these factors. Whether 3D printing technology is directly or indirectly used in jewelry manufacturing, it will simplify the current jewelry production process and promote the development of the industry in the direction of personalized, digital, and intelligent manufacturing.
Simplified design and production process.
Compared with traditional manufacturing, complex structures cannot be completed by hand, and 3D printing technology can make up for this artificial “hard injury”. 3D printing technology uses computer technology to establish three-dimensional models, which can be imported into the system for digital production according to demand, which can quickly produce high-precision and complex craft jewelry that cannot be achieved by traditional manufacturing. You just need to build a model of your personality through 3D modeling software, and you can make any shape through the 3D printer.
Reduce labor and production costs
3D printing omits related steps such as prototyping and mold making, which greatly reduces the production period and material cost. It has the advantages of simple operation, rapid prototyping, high precision, saving raw materials, and reducing losses.
For many jewelry brands, only by providing customized services for the young market can they stand out from the jewelry companies. 3D printing can produce quality-assured custom-designed products at a lower cost, which can meet consumers’ diverse needs for styles and provide them with efficient and convenient private customization.
Liberate Design Thinking
Compared with traditional manual craftsmanship, when designers design jewelry, even if they give priority to craftsmanship when conceiving and designing, in the actual production stage, traditional manual craftsmanship will still fail to achieve production. Through 3D printing technology, no matter how peculiar shapes, how unrealistic ideas and designs can be printed out using 3D printing, which cannot be achieved by traditional craftsmanship.
The finished product is more refined
The jewelry model through 3D printing technology is more three-dimensional and full, it can perfectly display the design of various styles, and can create more novel jewelry works, such as curved surfaces, hollows, etc., making high-end jewelry shinier.
