Equate Ring of Gears
Equate ring is one of my experiments in functional 3d printed jewelry. I designed it using Lightwave 3d modeling software and 3d printed it with a Projet HD 3000 industrial 3d printer. The machine uses paraffin wax as a support material during printing which is melted out after printing. This allows the creation of interlocking, moving parts. Comes out fully functional, no assembly required. I plan to design and release more functional items such as pendants, bracelets and earrings soon. Next I will be working on designing a precious metal form of the ring with spinning diamonds etc.
