For over 30 years, Isaac Cohen, a Florida Jeweler, provides his customers with good quality designs and custom-made items.
Until he discovers 3D printing, his main technique was traditional hand-carved waxes or service bureaus. In addition to be expensive, the hand-carved wax was not that easy to manage; it required to achieve even close to a consistent, symmetrical shape.
In June 2015, he started experiencing 3D printing with a Formlabs machine. “Digitalisation allowed him to quickly transfer the hand-sketched concept designs that he’d discussed with his client into CAD. Then, using the 3D Printer he could quickly produce prototypes for the customer to see. Once they were happy the final designs could be printed and sent to the casting house. After casting, Isaac buffs the piece to a mirror shine, sets the stones and final polishes it prior to presentation.”
After realizing the speed and accuracy brought by EnvisionTEC’s cDLM, the jeweler switches to that 3D printer.
This 3D printer can benefit to both digital dentistry and thejewelry sector. As a reminder, cDLM technology enables 3D printing of materials with an extremely high wax content, which is desirable for investment casting patterns. The cDLM can also process dual-cure engineering-grade materials with a short pot life – materials that can deliver properties similar to injection molded plastics.
Isaac now produces rings, pendants and other jewelry in a fraction of the time of traditional methods and his previous 3D printer. For the jeweler, “the cDLM 3D printer and Easy Cast material provide both a superior finish and exceptionally fast prints, that outstrips any of its rivals.”
