PROTOTYPING AND MODELLING HIGH FASHION ACCESSORIES
Years of experience in resin processing have allowed us to refine our technique and
collaborate in the creation of various high-fashion items.
THE PRODUCTION PHASES
The model to be created is discussed with the client. If we are provided with the 3D file, we use our high-definition 3D printer to print the part, which is then meticulously finished by hand as required. Sometimes, when the model has already been cast, it is necessary to make small changes or adjustments manually, which are skilfully achieved thanks to our experience in manual modelling.
Often, much of the work is limited to the simple prototyping of a few units, useful for presenting the
projects to the initial client. Resin and related silicone rubbers generally have low initial investment costs and are therefore very suitable for casting only a few units.
CASTING IN SERIES
If serial production of an object is required, after meticulous refinement of the master, production starts, which can range from a few dozen to a few thousand pieces.
For cast models, we also offer a finishing service, such as removal of casting marks, correction of any defects and, if necessary, preparation for painting.
This phase is the most meticulous and important because it allows us to give the end client a piece of the highest quality and value, just like the finest Italian craftsmanship.
SELECTING RESIN: ADVANTAGES
Resin has a very low initial investment cost, unlike, for example, plastic, which requires very expensive metal moulds and a rather long return-on-investment period.
In fact, the moulds used are made of silicone rubber and allow both very modest production runs (ideal for prototyping) and serial production of hundreds of units. In addition, it is easily machined, which makes it possible to remove all casting “marks” with relative ease and allows the creation of parts with consistent thicknesses and without shrinkage issues. The ease of processing makes it possible to achieve different effects, from matte to glossy. It is also non-toxic and easily paintable.
