“3D printing is kickstarting a new era of personalisation in jewelry design. And that’s great news for the creative types, as they finally get to express themselves in a new, accessible medium”, said Dalia Lasaite, CEO of CGTrader.com. “Personalised jewelry is riding a trend wave, so we think it’s a great opportunity for 3D professionals to dabble with this idea and reach more customers.”
Jewelry designs that were previously impossible to produce due to restrictions of conventional materials or existing technology, are now possible and actually – quite easy to realise. When it comes to 3D-printed jewelry, the 3D printing technology is redefining our notion of what is possible. Pushing the boundaries of their imagination, 3D designers are creating what is today considered to be out-of-this-world products and setting new fashion trends.
3D Print MiiCraft+ Jewelry design contest is targeted at 3D professionals and creatives interested in expanding their product portfolio and experimenting with new forms and designs. Winner of the best 3D printable design category will receive the MiiCraft+ 3D printer, which is the world’s smallest professional SLA-based DLPl 3D printer and is almost entirely dedicated to printing 3D jewelry and accessories.
The challenge runs until 30th of June.
