Taking 3D Printing To The Luxe Level
A technology that was once reserved for prototypes of resin based machine parts has now gone luxe with gold, silver and platinum jewelry that combines the traditional skill of old with futuristic new. Where traditional jewelry production involves a goldsmith, wax or resin molds and hand working the metal to create the original piece, Daniel Christian Tang, a Canadian startup company, has turned tradition on its head with their 3D metal printing process.
Since their inception, the company has experienced exponential growth in jewelry production and sales. Currently, their products are designed in Canada and manufactured in Hong Kong. However, their ultimate goal is to have all of their operations, from concept design to prototype and final production in Canada. In the Fall of 2015, HalTech Regional Innovation Centre connected Heng with Javelin Technologies, a growing and successful Halton-based CAD/CAM design and 3D printing company, as a possible means to make that goal a reality.
Stay tuned for Daniel Christian Tang’s next project that will put the customer in the artists’ seat and take jewelry design to the next level.
