Binder Jetting provides several benefits when additively manufacturing jewellery, including the ability to rapidly produce samples without molds or build supports. The technology also allows for fast, affordable production of hollow, interlinked, intricate, and mass-customised designs. It also eliminates processing steps associated with jewellery designs, such as welding.

As part of the introduction of platinum to its portfolio, Desktop Metal will showcase multi-material, multi-customer jewellery designs manufactured on P-1 machines at Rapid + TCT, scheduled to take place June 25-27 in Los Angeles, California. The Legor pieces will include aclassic wedding band, a gemstone ring, and an intricate leaf earring
