EnvisionTEC is a leading choice among goldsmith jewelers, and custom and large manufacturers for 3D printing jewelry patterns for casting. Our technology and materials together offer superior detail, precision and a smooth surface finish that requires less finishing. With EnvisionTEC, 3D print jobs go straight to the customer for review to casting and molding. Our machines are also incredibly reliable.

Highly detailed filigree and accurate settings are routinely produced with little or no adjustment to the machine.  The throughput of our printers is proven to be unparalleled in the industry. The accuracy achievable is beyond laser or printing alternative technologies with 15 micron resolution capability as standard.  This makes EnvisionTEC 3D printers the perfect choice for micro pave or invisible settings.

Save money in metal material and metal finishing time with patterns that deliver superior patterns for investment casting. With 3D printer prices starting at $10,000, the return on investment for a jewelry 3D printer is measured in months.

EnvisionTEC is a Proud Member of the Jewelry Community.

Learn Why Advanced DLP Technology is Better
for Jewelry 3D Printing

Not all forms of 3D printing are created equal—and that truth is also evident to the visible eye within individual 3D printing processes as well.

Novices may debate whether SLA or DLP is the superior technology. But EnvisionTEC’s team of global engineers — additive manufacturing and software leaders — have developed exclusive, patent-protected processes for 3D printers that deliver fast, smooth and accurate builds, with accuracy down to 10 microns.

In this white paper, EnvisionTEC shares the technical details of why it’s DLP printers are at least twice as good as its competitors when using the same HD projectors.

3D Printers for the Jewelry Industry

The Vida UHD cDLM offers the highest resolution 3D printing for jewelry available in EnvisionTEC's continuous family.

The Vida HD is the perfect choice for dental and jewelry professionals who need a higher resolution 3D printing option with production capacity.

The Vida cDLM delivers outstanding surface quality with no signs of stairstepping. With the largest build envelope available in cDLM technology, the Vida cDLM allows for high quality results from a manufacturer with more than 15 years of experience in 3D printing technologies.

The Micro Plus cDLM's patented technology allows for incredibly fast build speeds without sacrificing resolution or quality. Using a continuous motion of the build plate in the Z direction, prints can be completed in minutes rather than hours and still maintain 1 µm (0.00004 in.) accuracy in the Z direction.

The Micro Plus HD can produce small, premium components requiring a high level of precision, making it perfect for designers, shops and small jewelry businesses. It is able to build 5-6 average-sized rings in a single build with excellent detail and surface finish.

The Micro Plus Advantage is a cost-effective 3D printer that is ideal for jewelers and other designers specializing in small, precise components. It is capable of building 10-12 average-sized rings in a single build.

Boasting the highest resolution available in the Vida Series, the HD C&B model is ideal for the production of extremely precise dental crowns, bridges, and copings in both a castable and pressable material or in an FDA-approved material for long-term temporaries.

The Vida HD cDLM is a high-speed continuous 3D printer for the jewelry, dental and general manufacturing markets. This printer is the second offering EnvisionTEC's patented Continuous Digital Light Manufacturing technology and offers high resolution combined with blazing speeds. In addition, the technology also reduces the need for support structures during 3D builds, meaning less finishing is necessary.

The Perfactory 4 LED XXL offers the highest accuracy and best resolution in the vat polymerization market. It also includes the most powerful and cost-efficient light source. All this, plus the largest build envelope available in a DLP 3D printer.

The Perfactory 4 Mini XL LED Series uses a custom LED light system for extremely high resolution results. This new LED system is more powerful and efficient than other light projector systems on the market. As such, it offers a variety of benefits, such as lower operating costs and crisper black-white contrast between pixels, which means even better final part detail.

The Perfactory 4 Standard LED Series uses a custom LED light system. This new LED system is more powerful and efficient than other light projector systems on the market. As such, it offers a variety of benefits, such as lower operating costs and crisper black-white contrast between pixels, which means even better final part detail.

For jewelry manufacturers needing the precision of a P4 Mini with a larger build area, the P4 Mini XL has resolution capabilities as low as 22 µm (0.0009 in.) with ERM (Enhanced Resolution Module) and a build envelope up to 115 x 72 x 220 mm (4.5 x 2.8 x 8.66 in.).

The Aureus Plus is the perfect choice for small to medium sized jewelry companies to enable full production requirements. It is capable of building 8-12 pieces and the newly enhanced speed capabilities will allow for multiple builds each day in 43 µm (0.0017 in.) resolution.

A wise investment to help protect high value 3D printers and their print jobs, the EnvisionTEC PPS DLP is designed to protect the Micro Plus and Vida families of 3D printers from voltage fluctuations, power outages and other noise issues and provide a consistent supply of energy.

A wise investment to help protect high value 3D printers and their print jobs, the EnvisionTEC PPS DLP EU is designed to protect the Micro Plus and Vida families of 3D printers from voltage fluctuations, power outages and other noise issues and provide a consistent supply of energy.

The ideal companion for the smaller desktop 3D printing options, the PCA 100 is a light polymerization chamber for the hardening/curing of light curing resins, especially for jewelry, dental and otoplastic applications.

3D Printing Materials for the Jewelry Industry

A castable material with moderate levels of wax for 3D printing heavier jewelry pieces up to 20 grams finish weight.

With 20% powder wax content, WIC100 Series remains a popular value material in EnvisionTEC’s portfolio of castable materials. Delivers quality detail and printing speeds, along with a standard wax burnout cycle with regular gypsum investment.

A popular line of photosensitive resins that contain ceramic particles, EnvisionTEC's RC materials build tough and stiff parts at very high resolutions. Parts made with these materials are also resistant to high temperatures and are ideal for silicone molding, pump housings, blades, test parts for wind tunnels, light reflectors and various automotive applications. These materials are also perfect for high detail jewelry and animation applications and can be finished with a variety of methods including painting or plating.

EnvisionTEC’s quick building QView resin is ideal for providing fast design verification models. This exciting new material is capable of impressive print speeds for the full build envelope. This allows designers to put their custom design pieces into their customers’ hands in record time for final fit and design verification. It can also be used as a pattern when built in high resolution to make a silicone mold.

A breakthrough material for the high-speed printing of a castable photopolymer with the highest wax content available in 3D printing.

A popular production casting material, PIC 100 is ideal for printing jewelry, dental and other parts requiring exceptional detail and surface finish. In jewelry, PIC is recommended for pieces up to 5 grams finish weight, such as bridal jewelry.

High temperature molding material for non-metal masters dramatically changes 3D printing capabilities for manufacturers. With a heat deflection temperature of 140°C straight out of the machine, high definition parts printed in HTM140 can be directly vulcanized in rubber, eliminating the need for a metal master.

A low-wax 3D printing material, EPIC delivers results similar to EnvisionTEC’s wax-free PIC material, but with 8% liquid wax for lower thermal expansion during burnout. Ideal for customers who require flexibility between large and small pieces and have expert-level quality control in casting.

A high wax content material that delivers crisp details and a smooth surface finish, along with the clean burnout that delivers foolproof casting with standard investments.

High temperature resistance and excellent surface finish. A ceramic filled photopolymer that produces highly detailed parts with crisp features. Photosilver´s high temperature resistance allows for the production of vulcanized rubber molds without breaking or melting the master pattern.
