Toolry is teaming up with Pratt Institute in Brooklyn to host a week long exhibition
featuring jewelry made by 3D printing.
We are looking for 12-15 artists to feature their work at Pratt for New York City
Jewelry Week, running from November 12 -18, 2018.
The 3D printing industry is working diligently to meet the needs of various
industries but we want to explore how 3D printing is used to create wearable art
and jewelry. The exhibition will feature pieces made directly by 3D printing,
utilizing 3D printed materials rather than the more common “lost-wax” or
investment casting method, commonly used by jewelers. What happens when
we look at 3D printing for what it can offer rather than what it can do?
To submit your work (up to five pieces per artist), please email images and a
brief write up of your process and the types of 3D printing used in your piece,
to firstname.lastname@example.org. Details about the exhibition will be communicated
to you via email, upon receipt of your submission (due by September 30).
I have recently uploaded 40+ videos to YouTube about using the application Fluid Designer for 3D Printing. These videos include several labelled "Tips & Tricks" which I would recommend if you are using the software. The channel can be found @ https://www.youtube.com/c/STWLondon.
If you are using our software Fluid Designer for 3D Printing you will details of new YouTube videos on my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/fluiddesigner/ and you will also find a link to a new Facebook Group if you wish to join and upload your designs and/or ask for help.
If you want to learn how to make this ring watch the video at:
N.B. In the attached file there is a mesh where the gem would go. There is no reason why you can't create your own design and place a real gem on the ring.
Clearly any pattern can be added to the ring. Also, with Fluid Designer for 3D Printing there are a wide range available. I use "curves" instead of meshes to create the bracelet. Care does need to be taken with intersecting parts but on 99% of occasions Netfabb Basic will sort out any issues. In this example there were no issues (that is quite rare).
