 Step 4:

Printing the Model

The completed virtual model is sent for printing. A three-dimensional resin/wax model of the jewelry is generated in a 3D printer. The model is printed in layers of wax to a high resolution; the implementation of the physical design has begun.

The design team inspects the printed model carefully to ensure that it accurately reflects the original design. This is a pivotal point for quality control since this is the first instance in the manufacturing process that the idea is manifested into a physical creation. If the wax replica is not an exact match, the team returns to the drawing board to create a usable design.
