A Groom-To-Be Creates His Own 3D-Printed Wedding Band For The Most Special Day Of His Life

A Groom-To-Be Creates His Own 3D-Printed Wedding Band For The Most Special Day Of His Life

Wedding days are special days for everyone, and Daniel Weinberger is no exception. To celebrate love and to tie the knot with his beloved wife, this creative IT professional decided to make a custom-made 3D-printed wedding band.

Based in California, Dan has been a long-term fan of 3D printing. Back when he was still in school, he was fascinated with SolidWorks, a 3D CAD software that helps designers create authentic design experiences. Even though he built his career in IT, his interest in design and 3D printing didn’t cease.

“I’ve known about 3D printers for years! Currently, I work in medical device production, and our R&D department has resin printers to quickly prototype and design products we make. It’s nice to have the possibility to see how 3D printing works!” says Dan.

Creating a personalized wedding band is a beautiful way to honor a unique bond with your partner

We’re wrapping up our 30th-anniversary blog series for our parent company, Materialise, with a look at the final 3D printing technology in our portfolio: selective laser sintering (SLS). SLS, with i.mat offerings in Polyamide (SLS), Alumide, and Polypropylene, has been offered at Materialise since 1998. Over the past 22 years, our team has worked with this technology to reliably print application after application. This next decade, we’re turning our sights on sustainability, and SLS has a major role in enabling our customers to order prints that are manufactured in a more sustainable way with our new Bluesint PA12 material.
