About 3D Printing
3D printing is one of the many disruptive technologies that are about to revolutionize society. From printing houses to printing body parts, it's hard to keep up with the possibilities.
The state-of-the-art machines we use to print our models and jewellery are in either New York or the Netherlands, and they still cost in the realm of half a million dollars.
About Our 3D Material Options
If you simply want the geometry in the cheapest form possible whilst still having fine detail then this is the way to go. We prefer to print them in white, which you can then color by hand if you wish.
FULL COLORED 'SANDSTONE'
This is a softer and grainier resin, but the advantage is that it prints in full color, large size, and reasonably cheaply. Great for larger models or where color is important.
Steel is the most affordable of the metals to print in, and one of the strongest. Size makes a large difference to the cost in 3D printing, so for large metal models steel is definitely worth considering.
BRASS - RAW OR POLISHED
The 'Raw Brass' is lovely, and the 'Polished Raw Brass' can look almost as good as the gold plated brass versions.
BRONZE - RAW OR POLISHED
Similar to Brass (which in general we prefer)
GOLD PLATED - TOTALLY GORGEOUS
If you are a lover of geometric forms looking for a special piece then gold plating (or rhodium) is definitely the classy way to go!
SILVER - ALWAYS MYSTICAL
The 3 grades of silver are all lovely, but the polished and premium versions are noticeably more shiny and smoothly attractive. The polished and antique versions are much smoother and shinier !
