Jenny Wu, designer from architect firm Oyler Wu Collaborative, in association with a global provider of 3D printing solutions, Stratasys, have launched their 3D printed LACE jewelry collection that includes a range of products like rings and necklaces. Designed based on line geometry, the products are innovative and highly detailed.

With multiple layers of intricate and fine portions twisted together, 3D printed jewelry presents exquisite models that are created in a very short space of time. Tangens necklace designs are the key attraction of the LACE collection.

Available in three different colors, white, translucent and black, Tangens necklace presents a complicate design with interlocking segments produced using the Stratasys Fortus 400mc Production System. Stratasys FDM technology offers Tangens designs with properties such as detailed-pattern, durability, and tight tolerances.

Wu stated that she discovered ABS-M30 as the appropriate material for 3D printing of Tangens following a series of experiments. She added that the complex structure of the material with striated layers provides the Tangens a tough structure and distinct quality, enabling the creation of an elegant wearable design.

Papilio ring is another novel design created by Wu in association with Solidscape, a subsidiary of Stratasys. The model is designed like the flapping movement of a butterfly with clear and polished surface, using the MAX² 3D Printer.

The manufacturing process includes wax modeling, 3D printing of wax modeling, casting the 3D printed model in sterling silver through lost wax investment casting, finishing and hand-polishing the Papilio to add luster.

The 3D printed LACE collection is claimed to be in its last stage of production and will be released in the market this autumn.
