Gilding of 3D printed parts with 24 carat leaf gold
What we did?
- Adaptation of the 3D model for printing
- CAD Design
- Nylon (MJF PA12)
- 24 carat leaf gold finish
The most ancient technique of gilding is applying very thin leaf gold on different materials and objects.
We use the same technique on 3D printed parts. All surfaces are being covered with gold leaves, a slow manual process which requires a lot of precision. The result it is a stunning shiny, golden and smooth surface.
