3d printer for jewelry

Welcome! It depends a bit on your budget and what kind of material you want to print. Generally speaking, I've heard a lot of good things about the Creality Ender series though:

This might be helpful also:

 

These come pretty much fully assembled, maybe a couple things you have to plug in. If you have a bigger budget, I would definitely recommend Prusas:

With jewelry in particular, you'll want a very fine print so you don't need much finishing. Cheaper printers will give you less precise detail the smaller and more intricate you get, but I think unless you're incredibly picky it might not matter. Depends on the thing being printed.

 

 

This is all for FFF printing, where molten plastic is forced out of a nozzle. There's a second type called SLA< which uses liquid resin and special lights to harden it layer by layer. You can get the MOST detailed prints out of this. It's what you'd want to use to print things like RPG minis and figurines:

I've never used one of these setups, but it would be great for jewelry too.

 

What kind of jewelry are you printing?

Hi guys, i am looking to buy 3d printer for jewelry

Can anyone recommend a printer 3D, I don't have much knowledge about Printers.

Thanks in advanced.

You can get a 3D pen version, relatively cheap for making jewellery.

I will highly recommend these 3d printer for jewelry as a starter, but from the experience of others who have bought similar printers I would recommend getting a model with auto bed leveling.

We researched and got a Prusa for our son. He is currently working out a space in the house and a proper bench/table for it to sit on, so we have not yet assembled it. You can check it out here @Robertel for all detailed reviews and guides . I have been patient, but I am ready to mess around with it too! We had to order direct, shipping was pretty reasonable and did not take too long either
