Welcome to the golden age of 3D printing: introducing 14 carat gold to the Shapeways materials family.
This video highlights the hand-polishing process that gives our designers’ products their beautiful high shine.
Like all of Shapeways cast metals (silver, bronze, brass), your designs are 3D printed in wax. The wax model is used to make a plaster mold for casting, and is made through traditional casting, hand-finished processes. With 3D printing, jewelers, designers and makers can design intricacies and geometries that are not possible through traditional mold making.
