3D sculpting is a fascinating way to bring characters, monsters, and all kinds of organic shapes to life. While many 3D modeling programs focus on precision, 3D sculpting apps are all about turning a piece of visual clay into a stunning 3D print. This article will show you the 10 best 3D sculpting programs to get the job done!
Once again we’re proud to announce a new member in our growing family of 3D printing materials. After offering 3D printing in steel, titanium and even wood, we are now excited to announce the official trial of a new 3D printed metal that is perfect for strong & light parts: 3D printed aluminum. Let’s take a closer look!
Before a 3D printer can start printing your jewelry object, it needs digital input from a computer, or a virtual 3D model. This blog post will explain which 3D modeling programs are perfect for jewelry designers who want to print their products in 3D. Once you have found a software to create your designs in 3D, we can print them in gold, silver, brass, brass or 100+ other materials and finishes.
Polyamide is one of the most popular 3D printing materials used by professional 3D printing companies. Its advantages are manifold: it is available at a reasonable price, it can include interlinking and interlocking parts, and it can be finished in various ways (dyed, smoothed, spray-painted, given a velvet finish). Today we will explain why Polyamide is such a great all-rounder and how 3D printing in nylon plastic really works.
Luthier Hilko Nackaerts builds hand-crafted guitars that take the sound of a string to perfection. By combining traditional woodwork techniques with the cutting edge technology of 3D printing, Hilko manages to create truly unique musical instruments. We met up with this talented designer to learn more about the passion that drives him and to listen to the sound of his 3D-enhanced guitars.
Polyamide is the all-rounder when it comes to 3D printing materials. It can be used for hand-painted sculptures, tech gadget prototypes, stunning fashion and jewelry design, or even pieces of art. Since this nylon plastic comes in 26 different finishes and can be used so universally, we thought it was about time to pay attention to some of its outstanding designs. Take a look at 10 of the coolest polyamide objects we created in our 3D printers lately.
Meet Kurt Plagge, designer of one of the craziest (and smartest) designs we’ve seen lately. His small 3D printed cubes are from a world of their own and were printed in one single piece. That’s right – no glue, no screws, and no manually attached parts. Thanks to laser sintering in Polyamide and his extreme 3D modeling skills, Kurt has managed to create a 3D printed object unlike any other.
I know that creating a model for 3D printing can be somewhat intimidating. Despite offering you a lot of design freedom, 3D printable models still need to stick to certain design rules. In this blog posts I will explain the 5 most important 3D modeling tips to ensure that your jewelry is perfectly 3D printable. These rules are applicable for any orders in gold, silver, bronze, and brass.
3D printing brings your virtual jewelry designs to real life. Our 3D printing meetup for jewelry designers will give you the inspiration and technical know-how that is needed to turn your projects into 3D printed reality.
