6 weeks
2-hour weekly class with self-practice between classes
January 19 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. Mountain Time [Santa Fe NM]

3D printing has opened up a myriad of possibilities for jewelers.  While direct metal 3D Printing is not yet commonplace in the industry, 3D Printing molds for casting adds a number of advantages to designers, including:

  • high precision at faster speeds than hand mold-making
  • resolution at approximately 1 mil with stereo lithography 3D Printers
  • ability to create complex geometries that are impossible with other production methods

In this class you will

  • Learn the principles of digital design with considerations for best casting results
  • Design jewelry molds that will be 3D Printed and photographed for you to review
  • Review your designs with the class in order to ideate revisions
  • Receive a final sanitized 3D Print of your mold

Instructor Mayte Cardenas combines knowledge of digital design, jewelry making, casting and post-processing to give you a total picture of today’s advanced technologies.
