It's been a very busy week designing this ring, hitting a few dead ends and having to get used to be decisive on design directions as this project is so short! In my last post I mentioned the possibility of using laser sintering and laser welding, through design development I have found a way to incorporate both of these technologies into my design.
In order to get an idea of what the flower could look like I started to develop more using CAD software, specifically Rhino and ArtCAM as I can get more detail and control with these two. Next on the list is to get a model of the flower ready that can get laser sintered in Nylon over the Christmas break ready for testing before the real thing is printed and assembled.
Our second module is all to do with laser technology; learning about what we can use and how we could apply it to our work. The technologies we are learning about are laser sinetring in Nylon and precious metals, laser cutting and laser welding.
I am a third year student at the School Of Jewellery in Birmingham. Posts will be based upon my progress through my final year on this DFI course.
