3D Printing Jewelry

Everyone loves jewelry. Have you ever been admiring a piece of jewelry only to find yourself thinking, “if only it had [this]” or “I wish it was a different color” ? Now with affordable 3D printing processes, you can design your own wearable art in free 3D modeling software, such as TinkerCAD or Autodesk 123d Design. Then you can print your design out of plastic on an inexpensive 3D printer, such as the Printrbot Simple. Don’t have access to a printer? No problem! Upload your design to Shapeways and pay for materials and shipping costs. Here are some rings that our workshop participants have designed and printed:
