Christian Tse of Formula 3D And Desktop Metal Launch 3D Printing for Sterling Jewelry July 26, 2022 (0 comments)


Monrovia, CA--Christian Tse of Formula 3D, in partnership with Desktop Metal, officially launched 925 sterling silver for 3D printing of fine jewelry on Desktop Metal’s Production System platform.

In partnership with Formula 3D and luxury goods manufacturers, Desktop Metal is also fast-tracking the development of additional precious metal alloys in 2022, including 18K yellow gold, with active research and development underway on 18K rose gold, Tse said.

“Desktop Metal’s Production System and 3D printing add extraordinary value to our existing jewelry manufacturing processes, increasing efficiency of production, getting new designs to market faster, and offering our customers greater versatility and multiple styling options. We can actually print in precious metals in two hours what we do in two days with casting,” Tse said. “In addition, creating jewelry with direct 3D printing on binder jetting systems allows us to consider new options to circumvent some of the supply chain challenges facing the fine jewelry industry. We can bypass shipping delays and their mounting costs, as well as avoid duties, by printing the precious silver directly, as opposed to shipping the physical metal.”

Formula 3D Corporation now offers designers and manufacturers a complete end-to-end solution for 3D printing of precious silver - from the design to beautiful, customer-ready finished quality jewelry. A new video released by Desktop Metal with Christian Tse shows how his luxury design and manufacturing house is using the Production System P-1 to reimagine its jewelry manufacturing. 

“The qualification of precious metals for direct 3D printing on high-speed binder jetting systems is a major milestone for the jewelry and luxury goods industry,” said Ric Fulop, founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “All the design freedom and customization of 3D printing can now be delivered directly at high volumes without all of the labor associated with traditional manufacturing processes. What’s more, this new direct 3D printing innovation builds on the established legacy of Desktop Metal’s ETEC brand, which has been a leader in 3D printers for lost-wax casting models for more than a decade — making us the unparalleled leader in comprehensive additive manufacturing solutions for the jewelry and luxury goods market.”
