3D FOR JEWELLERY

3D printing has revolutionized the jewellery industry as it has other industries. It has allowed jewellery designers to be limitlessly creative and bring their ideas to life in much less time compared to conventional methods. Through the use of Liquid Crystal 3D printers this enables manufacturing of highly customized, geometrical complex and more cost effective jewellery models. Another unique feature of the Liquid Crystal 3D printers is the time to print multiple models. Multiple models can be produced in the same time as one single model, saving you time and money.

Casting Printed Objects

After printing, wash parts thoroughly with warm, soapy water. Ensure there is no remaining, uncured resin on the parts after washing them. If the parts are very delicate it is easier to clean them in an ultrasonic cleaner using warm soapy water.

For Daylight resin: Post expose parts under water in a clear container (glass or plastic) for 10 minutes in strong light (UV lamp) or  30 mins under a table light or in sunshine. Turn the object half way through to give it even exposure to light.

For DLP and Laser UV resin: Post expose parts for 10 minutes in a UV lightbox under water. Turn the object half way through to give it even exposure to light.

 

Final Steps prior to casting for Daylight and UV resins

If you have cleaned and post exposed parts thoroughly they will have dry surface finish. If they are still a little sticky after post exposure, wipe them with IPA until dry. Coating samples with a PTFE coating prior to casting is recommended to prevent the investment sticking and leaving a rough surface over the cast parts. We recommend Plasticast investment (preferably Plasticast with BANDUST) by Ransom & Randolph.

SUITABLE RESINS

Casting Process:

Note: Dwell time is highly dependent on flask casting size. The following times are recommended for tree-like assembly in casting flasks less than Ø100 x 200mm.

Quick Burnout: If you are not pre-placing any precious stones in the casting flask, you can also use a quick casting cycle as follows:

  1. Heat your kiln to 730 °C
  2. Place the flask in preheated kiln (730 °C), and hold for 4 hours.
  3. Allow to cool naturally with furnace door ajar, to casting temperature.
  4. Hold at casting temperature for 30 minutes, then pour molten metal into the cast.
