SliceLab’s jewelry designers used Ember to rapidly prototype and print their jewelry designs for investment casting. This dramatically shortened the time required to develop a complete line of jewelry, enabling them to go from design to market in record time.
Prior to using Ember, SliceLab’s designers had to use 3D print bureaus, which were slow, expensive, and were unable to print the fine details of their designs. This restricted their ability to execute their creative vision, preventing them from being able to translate the desired level of detail into their work. It also slowed down their process of iterating designs to create their final, production-ready masters.
SliceLab’s technical requirements included:
3D printing with Ember enabled the SliceLab designers to:
Using Ember, they were able to prototype and develop a complete line of jewelry in just four months.
“Ember allowed us to get really intricate and complex geometries out of the printer and into the casting realm. There are pieces we have created for this collection that a print bureau would not even touch.”
