Today in the Lab: Investment Casting with Ember

Arthur Harsuvanakit is a technical assistant to our CEO, Carl Bass. They codesign stuff together. A while back they imagined, designed, and created some jewelry. The jewelry pieces were presented as gifts to Autodesk Board members.

Investment casting is where one creates a wax or clay mold that will be used to produce of an object. In this case, liquid metal will be poured into the clay bold to make jewelry. Arthur and Jewelry Designer/Caster, Alexis Pavlantos used our Autodesk Ember 3D printer to make the molds.

Here is how the jewelry turned out.

Preparation for metallurgy is alive in the lab.
