Jewelry is one of the industries that have grown rapidly due to the implementation of additive manufacturing. Jewelry designers are now able to create totally innovative pieces and shapes that would not have been possible to conceive, until a few years ago, because too costly to implement into a day-to-day workflow. Thanks to the combination of new technologies such as generative modeling software and various 3D printing methods, the possibilities for designing jewelry finally seem limitless.
Test Your Jewelry Design Skills in Design Museum Boston’s 3D Printed Jewelry Competition
To celebrate the fusion of traditional craftsmanship and new technologies, the Design Museum Boston teamed with Solidscape and Luxion KeyShot to offer a 3D printed jewelry design competition. The winning design will be part of an itinerant exhibition in the United States as well as a cash reward, among other prizes…
Submissions will be evaluated based on the uniqueness of the design, wearability, fashion innovation, visual presence and obviously, the creative use of working within the constraints of CAD and 3D printing, to stretch what is possible. Joshua Harker (of Crania Anatomica Filigre fame), Sam Aquillano (Executive Director of Design Museum Boston), Fabio Esposito (President and CEO of Solidscape) and Jessica Rosenkrantz (Co-founder of Nervous System) will be part of the 13 judges coming from all corners of the design, CAD and 3D printing industry that will determine the winners.
