Ever since 3D Printing became mainstream a few years ago, businesses all around the world are using the technology to revolutionize their industry. From medical to automotive applications, 3D printing is used in almost every industry. If you haven’t been following the 3D printing news lately, you might be surprised to hear that the fashion industry has also been impacted by 3D printing. In fact, one startup in Ontario, Canada, by the name of Daniel Christian Tang offers an amazing line of 3D Printed Jewelry.

Typically when you buy jewelry, the more complicated the geometry the more expensive it is as there is a lot of manual labour involved in creating the pieces. Daniel Christian Tang has been able to reduce the costs and turnaround time significantly through 3D printing to allow their customers to buy extravagant jewelry for a fraction of the price. The combination of lower price and quick turnaround with the same beautiful materials such as Diamond, Platinum, or Gold, has made them a successful and unique business.

One of their pieces of Jewelry was printed on a Fortus 450mc which is a performance production line printer developed by Stratasys. The printer is capable of prints ranging from 0.005″ to 0.013″ so in order to maximize the surface finish and time to print, the part was printed in 0.007″. Once the print was finished, it went through some post processing in order to prepare it for the fashion show.
