The jewelry industry has been steadily impacted by 3D printing for more than ten years, and counting according to the new report "3D Printing Jewelry Markets 2023. The report mentioned 3D Systems and looks at the trends that are affecting the consumer and technology sides of the 3D printed luxury jewelry industry. Some of these trends include printing molds and patterns out of both metal and polymer. 3D Systems announced that its new ProJet MJP 2500W Plus jewelry printer is now available.

For the lost wax casting process, this new 3D printing solution is used to create high-quality, intricate, and precise wax jewelry patterns. It was created with the jewelry industry in mind. The new ProJet MJP 2500W Plus can print smooth, pure wax casting patterns in a matter of hours thanks to its high speed and high resolution print mode, significantly increasing productivity. In addition, the patterns require less finishing to reduce precious metal waste, making it easier to produce jewelry with even complex geometries quickly and economically.

“Producing jewelry requires the ability to bring complex, creative designs to life The global jewelry additive manufacturing market is estimated at over $2 billion and is growing quickly due to the increased productivity, quality, flexibility, and design freedom enabled by this technology. Today, we’re excited to announce the ProJet MJP 2500W Plus, with increased resolution and productivity that is unmatched in the industry,” Scott Anderson, Vice President, Segment Leader,
3D Systems, said in a press release last week. “This innovation allows our customers to deliver exceptional design styles, wh le reducing pattern production time and operational costs, meeting the demands of a mass-customization environment. Coupled with the reliable and repeatable
direct casting of our 100% wax solution, users will be able to achieve cost-effective, high-qualitycasting patterns with quick turnaround and high throughput.”

Jewelry is one of the few luxury consumer goods, and designers like Jenny Wu and Ganit Goldstein are printing a lot of it. Several additive manufacturing businesses, including 3D Systems, HP, B9Creations, Formlabs, and others, are competitors in this market. However, the significant drain on resources that can result from the need to polish the jewelry by hand can have a negative impact on profit. ProJet MJP 2500W Plus, 3D Systems claims to have solved this problem thanks to a ZHD print mode that improves the vertical resolution of 3D printed casting patterns by up to two times without using excessive wax. The ZHD print mode prints pieces with an excellent surface, and that implies to a lesser degree a gold lost. In addition, users can print more intricate designs without having to polish them.

With a maximum build envelope capacity of 294 x 211 x 144 mm, the ProJet MJP 2500W Plus enables customers to increase their 3D printed wax casting pattern throughput by up to 25%.
Users are able to meet high demand and quality standards for customized jewelry as a result of this increased productivity, as well as enjoy greater planning flexibility and, as 3D Systems stated, "the ability to deliver high-volume production batches." Post-processing quickly and easily with dissolvable supports is another time-saving feature, and 3D Connect enables cloud
connectivity for quick, predictive service.

Printing jewelry patterns with fine feature definition and "true-to-CAD" sharp details and edges is made possible by this new 3D printer, which makes use of the company's MultiJet Printing (MJP) technology. This material is long-lasting for handling and casting fine features. It melts like standard casting waxes without ash, resulting in flawless castings. Additionally, the high contrast of the colors makes it easier to see the minute details. With these components and 3D
Systems' cutting-edge 3D Sprint software, users can quickly print high-fidelity wax sacrificial casting patterns for jewelry production using the ProJet MJP 2500W Plus.

The ProJet MJP 2500W Plus 3D printer from 3D Systems claims to have a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and is now available for purchase with immediate shipping.
