Material-Details: Gold Datasheet

 

Our gold parts are made of 14k or 18k gold.

By producing in the 3D printing, forms can be realized, which can not be produced with traditional processing methods.
This gives you the opportunity to indulge yourself fully in the design.


Advantages & disadvantages

Advantages
  • Stainless
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Detailed and extremely clean in print
  • Very good permanent availability
  • High stability
  • kind to the skin
Disadvantages
  • Not all possible shapes

Material examples

Pendant made from Gold 3D printing
Skull made of Gold 3D printing
Ring from Gold 3D printing

Price calculation

Gold is calculated in cm³. Gold comes always polished.
An additional handling fee per model is necessary because a lot of manual work is involved in the production.

  • 14K: 900 €/cm³; Handling fee 50 €
  • 18K: 1200 €/cm³; Handling Package 100€

Typical usage

Gold is mostly used to produce their own jewelery such as rings or pendants.


Technology

Gold is made in the so-called "lost wax" process.
Here, your component will be printed using SLA in a special Castingwax and then a classic cast.

The procedure:

Your model is disassembled by a program into individual layers of 0.05 mm.
Now a plate lowered into a bath of wax casting.
On this plate, a UV laser now starts to "draw the contours and shapes of the parts". At all points in which the laser meets the Resinbad, the material hardens.
Now the build platform lowers to a layer thickness down and a slide provides new material on its surface.
This process is repeated up layer by layer until your component is finished.
Your component rests on the insulators during the construction process.
These are removed and smoothed manually after the printing operation.
Your part is now placed in a form and with a casting substance poured around. After this mass is cured, the printed part is melted off (hence the term 'Lost Wax').
Now the resulting cavity is poured with molten gold. Thy portion is broken after curing from the mold and the sprue is removed. Thereafter, the further post-processing steps are carried out as polishing and grinding.

Additional information

  • Forms such as "ball in ball" can not be produced.
  • All forms that "float" are not feasible (For example. The links of a chain)
