Kinetic jewelry

WIZEgem Kinetic enables users to easily create jewelry with moving parts

Users can choose between kinetic elements with built-in spinning mechanism (ring, pendant and bracelet) or use a connecting kinetic element, named “Axis” or “joint”, which can connect, digitally through join, any two elements. One will be the base and the other the moving element, to create a spinning jewelry. For all kinetic elements there is an option for the user (just a click of a mouse) to lock the moving part to enable printing in metal. This will automatically add a very small locking part which can be easily removed by the user after production.

Built in kinetic elements design steps – spinning ring example:

  1. Choose rings and from special ring set select spin ring
  2. Edit ring diameter
  3. Use free hand mode to edit the spinning part shape (see manual edit tutorial)
  4. For 3D printing in metal press edit button and press “lock (metal)” edit marker
