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.
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.
Almost all of our rings have dozens of diamonds, complicated galleries, and many other features you just can’t get with a wax-based growing material. We’ve stuck with EnvisionTEC’s PIC-100 resin. It has always worked very well. Our precision is pretty much dead on. We don’t have a lot of shrinkage or expansion the way we do it. We don’t have a problem with it when we’re measuring diamonds and so forth. It’s pretty much exact.
We date back to hand-carving. That's been our foundation. ... Our 3D printer has allowed us to grow and do thing we never thought we could do by hand. The technology has changed the business so dramatically, we're always pushing what we can do. ... Our (3D printer build) plate is literally full every night.
You know, I have worked with and have experience in ALL machine milling machines, Roland, Solidscape, & Perfactory. I gotta tell you honestly I love my desktop. I would not trade it for anything else.
We always search for the highest quality tools in order to produce the most exceptional jewelry. The P4 from EnvisionTEC, combined with their high resolution resins, produces the highest quality prints, offering a platform that sits perfectly alongside our handmade production. This machine has helped to take the company into the 21 century using the highest technology.
Introducing the D4K Pro, the highest resolution 4K desktop 3D printer. Including the highest print speed for a standard DLP printer, the D4K Pro from EnvisionTEC delivers extremely accurate parts with the finest detail available. The D4K Pro is compatible with all the EnvisionTEC DLP resins, including PIC100, WIC100 and QView.
The Vida UHD cDLM offers the highest resolution 3D printing for jewelry available in EnvisionTEC's continuous family.
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 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.
Introducing the only DLP-based 3D printers utilizing a true 4M pixel projector with UV optics tuned to 385nm wavelength. The P4K Series delivers the highest accuracy coupled with the highest finished product functionality. Utilizing Artificial Intelligence (AI) in pixel tuning to deliver extremely high quality surface finish, the P4K delivers next generation advanced DLP technology in 3D printing.
A breakthrough material for the high-speed printing of a castable photopolymer with the highest wax content available in 3D printing.
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 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.
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.
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 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 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.
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 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.
A castable material with moderate levels of wax for 3D printing heavier jewelry pieces up to 20 grams finish weight.
