3D Printing for Jewelers: Digital to Metal

Dates: October 26 - December 7, 2022

Meets: W from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Location: 25 Sagamore Road Enamels Studio

Student Fee: $335.00

3D printing has never been more accessible and less expensive. Take the leap and add 3D printing to your jewelry business toolbox! In this class, learn the basics of the CAD program TinkerCAD, as well as the basics of 3D printer use, maintenance and safety, and the steps needed to prepare the models for casting (either in a home casting setup or through a professional casting company). Each class day will oscillate between demos in the beginning of the class and then working on freshly cast pieces from the previous week. Students will be allowed and encouraged to design in or out of class and can expect to have quite the number of pieces by the end of the course.

Each student will have a casting budget of $25 (about 5 cast pieces) if the student goes over the budget they will be expected to cover the difference in cost. 

Class will be 6 weeks long, in person, but students will need to bring a computer or tablet capable of using TinkerCAD.
