I am so excited to learn this new that ELLE Time & Jewelry is hosting a jewelry design contest on Pinshape.com, a 3D file marketplace. Other than the opportunity to see more designers around the world, I am happy to know that Kudo3D is considered for 3D printing model in jewelry making!
The story goes back to when we were searching around to buy a 3D printer that with outcomes detailed enough for jewelry, we came across Kudo3D. With its reasonable price and specifications posted on their website, Kudo3D has been on our keep-an-eye-on list for awhile. I was a little bit concerning about it's true ability in jewelry model printing, as their sample photo for jewelry wax prints in the gallery was not as clear nor accurate as a jewelry wax model should be. I sent an email to inquire the matter and while they couldn't provide a physical sample to me at the time, I can see that they have heard my worries. Around a month ago I received an email informing that the physical samples would be ready to order, and the sample photos on the website appealingly have all updated.
Seeing the new photos of those wax prints, I was less worried. Then this contest appears... guess what, the Kudo3D printer Titan1 is in the prize list!
