One of the most profound ways in which 3D printing has impacted the jewellery sector is as a method for prototyping and tooling — as the precursor to investment casting or die casting, whereby 3D printing is used to create the primary model or a direct wax pattern from which to achieve a rubber or silicon mould. These applications have seen massive developments in many areas of the jewellery sector, eliminating some of the most time-consuming steps of the traditional process.
