An amazing set of jewelry designs were selected for awards at the recent Baselworld Design Competition.
Solidscape, if you haven’t heard, is a manufacturer of high-resolution wax 3D printers, typically used by jewelers to create wax models for metal casting.
The competition awarded Platinum, Gold and Silver winners in two categories, jewelry design and fine art. We’re very impressed with these designs.

Intricate and unusual designs such as these are made possible by the technology of 3D printing, which enables the imagination of the artist to become real through 3D modeling. We support contest such as this because they challenge designers to take an extra step and make superior designs.
