Canadian designer a solidscape winner at Baselworld


Solidscape Inc., the leading manufacturer of high precision 3D wax printers for the jewellery industry, has announced the winners of the seventh annual Baselworld Design Competition. As the focal point of the watch and jewelry industry, Baselworld inspires industry leaders and top designers to showcase their creations and innovations on a worldwide stage. Every year, Solidscape provides designers the opportunity to receive international recognition for their work.

“Solidscape is proud to showcase the most creative and innovative jewelry designs that embrace cutting edge 3D printing technology,” stated Fabio Esposito, Solidscape’s president. “This year’s winning designers have created complex geometries and organic shapes that are impossible to produce through traditional hand carving techniques. These designers are thrilled because Solidscape’s precision 3D printing technology allows them to unleash their imagination and push the boundaries of creative design.”

A Canadian designer, K. Abeney of CADLoft, has tied for the Silver Award for Jewelry with the “Resting Butterflies” pendant. This three-dimensional, double-sided pendant shows a dozen interwoven butterflies resting together. The reverse of the pendant shows a beautiful pattern created by the wings of the butterflies.


Design entries were judged based on successful wax modeling printed by a Solidscape 3D printer, best design (artistry and style), as well as best use of technology (CAD/Solidscape 3D printing). All finalists’ pieces can be found on the Solidscape 2017 Baselworld Design Competition webpage.
