At Solidscape we develop and deliver 3D solutions for advanced manufacturing. With our 3D printers and materials customers can create high-precision wax patterns to be cast in metal, to be used for mold making (RTV) or even to be pressed in ceramics for dental restorations.
Our goal is to change the way parts are made with a simple click . . . one industry at a time!
From Inspiration to Finished Design
The 3Z Studio brings the jeweler’s bench to the retail shop where users of any technical level can produce their own intricate wax patterns, ready for casting. The fully automated 3Z Studio marries the passion of fine jewelry design with the power of high precision 3D printing.
Easy One-Touch Operation
Intuitive one-touch operation via a universal LCD icon display eliminates language and technical barriers.
The 3Z Studio empowers the jewelry creation process from design through finished wax patterns in an effortless workflow that delivers high casting yields, consistent turnarounds and low cost-per-parts.
Superior Casting Results
New 3Z Model and 3Z Support materials produce extremely smooth jewelry wax patterns that accurately reproduce the most intricate of geometries—without the need for manual refining. Both materials offer superior casting properties, fast meltout, no ash or residue, and no thermal expansion.
