As the 3D printing market matures, we are seeing more and more niche market printers becoming available to the public. Sure, you could use a Makerbot Replicator or a Cubify Cube 3D printer to make plastic jewelry, but if you are doing it as a profession, than you want something more niche oriented, catered towards jewelry making, which can print in other materials. This is just what the he Perfactory® Micro Advantage 3D printer is for.
