Fluid Designer for 3D Printing (Blender + JewelCraft) utilises the power of Blender with the added function of using Parametric Smart Objects (Nurbs Curves like Rhino uses). This combination allows the user to simply join objects together to create complex 3D printable jewellery, and other useful objects, with little technical skill or knowledge. Anyone, can create their own personalised jewellery and get it 3D printed at Shapeways or even print at home on a desktop printer in wax which can then be cast.
STUDY JEWELLERY DESIGN
We can show you how you can create your own Personalised Jewellery (and other items) using Blender + Fluid Designer for 3D Printing + JewelCraft.
