Jewelrythis, the online service that lets jewelers find, create and manufacture CAD designs from a single platform, and Solidscape, which develops and manufactures high-precision 3D printers for rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing, are once again joining forces for the Spotlight is on You 3D jewelry design contest.

The contest was kicked off for the first time last year and was met with such great success that the two companies have decided to run the contest again this year. The two businesses are a natural fit as Jewelrythis is a platform for creating and manufacturing CAD models and Solidscape is a leader in high-precision 3D printers.

The Spotlight is on You contest highlights not only the endless possibilities of CAD jewelry and 3D printing, but also helps to attract and promote talented 3D jewelry designers.  By submitting their 3D models to the Jewelrythis platform, designers can look forward to gaining greater recognition in the jewelry world. This year’s contest finalists will be announced on May 8th and the winning design will be produced and on display in Solidscape’s booth at the JCK 2017 show in Las Vegas, one of the most important jewelry shows in the world, attracting over 230,000 visitors.

Dror Habusha, the founder of Jewelrythis, said that “the contest presents a one-of-kind opportunity for our worldwide community of designers to showcase their models and earn recognition for their work. For the first time, the entire jewelry making process, starting with CAD, continuing on to Solidscape’s high-precision 3D printing, and finally, casting and finishing, will all be done using the unique Jewelrythis platform.“

Laura Startzenbach, the Director of Marketing at Solidscape, said “The Jewelrythis platform and The Spotlight is on You Jewelry Design Contest is a perfect partnership for us. The Jewelrythis marketplace environment brings together designers, manufacturers and jewelers who are fueling the latest trend – fast fashion jewelry”

The second annual contest is set to kickoff March 23, 2017. Interested designers can go directly to the Jewelrythis site for details about how to enter.
