8. The modern goldsmith’s workshop

As previously noted, the introduction of 3D modeling and 3D printing in a production process makes it possible to implement production, reduce time, optimize production processes, reduce costs, etc. But turning a traditional laboratory into a laboratory that uses these modern technologies is difficult? It is expensive? Does it involve radical changes in space? The answer is simple and is “no”.

Considering what has been explained up to this point of 3D modeling and 3D printing, one can confidently say that to transform a “traditional” workshop into a “modern” one, it is sufficient to provide a position for design, 3D modeling and 3D printing. Which translates into a workstation with a computer, in which to install appropriate software and a 3D printing station. Considering the current costs and volumes of these instruments, this operation is within everyone’s reach.

Other tools, such as laser scanners or other, are optional and depend on strategies and economic availability, and personal choices.

The technical skills required for managing 3D printing are small.

The separate discussion concerns the skills required for those who work in 3D modeling that require time and application, however considering how the 3D modeling software is becoming easier with the passing of the years this obstacle is not so insurmountable.
