About Project

The designer brought the parametric design idea to jewelry design. It's a bit difficult to print such dense long overhangs, so there are many failures behind a perfect-looking one.


  • Step 1: First, our engineers evaluate the diameter reserved for bead assembling. The 3D model will be broken down into layers of 0.1 mm on the computer and sent to the 3D printer.
  • Step 2: Before printing, we need to fill the tank with PA 12 powders. On a bed pressure, a 0.1 mm thick layer over the whole width is applied.
  • Step 3: Pre-heat the machine to about 100°C, and the laser will light the powder and increases the temperature just above the melting point of the powders.
  • Step 4: After a layer is formed, the platform will lower down and produce another layer.
  • Step 5: When the printing process ends, remove the excess powders which also serve as supports.
  • Step 6: Measure the prints about the deformation rate. Sand-blast them with care by hand to avoid breaking them.
  • Step 7: Rinse the prints in dye solution to make them totally and evenly black colors. Finally assemble them with the beads.
