WEBINAR: Revolutionizing Jewelry Making with 3D Printing
Since the start of civilization, jewelry has been an important part of the lives of humans worldwide. From the prehistoric era to ancient civilizations to our modern era, it has always been one of the key items created in societies as it allows us to display status, decorate our bodies and, of course, has a sentimental connection. And indeed, it cannot be denied that the industry is still growing strong, with the global market expected to reach $255.42B USD by 2027. But just because a tradition is ancient, does not mean it cannot be improved upon. 3D printing, especially DLP and binder jetting, is increasingly being adopted by the jewelry industry thanks to its ability to quickly and more cheaply create intricate, detailed designs.
In our webinar, “Revolutionizing Jewelry Making with 3D Printing,” we looked into ho2 both resin and metal 3D printing are already being used to revolutionize the jewelry sector. We were joined by experts from Lino and Kranias Astroroes Jewelry, a family owned jewelry business in Thessaloniki who was on the forefront of 3D printing adoption for jewelry manufacturing in Greece, who explained how 3D printing compares to traditional manufacturing in the sector. Furthermore, they will showed in detail the benefits of using 3D printing for jewelry making as well as the differences in using resins and metals and the specific advantages of both.
