Tariq Riaz Utilises Formlabs Printers and AbrazoFit™ Technology to Craft Unique Jewelry Pieces



                        

Description

Utilising Earth's finest materials and leveraging a skilled team of skilled artisans in conjunction with cutting-edge technology, Tariq Riaz undertakes the design and fabrication of distinctive pieces intended for collection. His specialism lies in the creation of expandable jewellery items, with a particular focus on rings, employing an exclusive stretch and spring technology that has been meticulously engineered. Drawing upon insights and technological innovations from the medical device industry, in combination with Riaz's own engineering acumen, he has successfully developed his proprietary expansion mechanism for bands, known as AbrazoFit™. The fabrication of AbrazoFit™ pieces requires an extensive prototyping process, necessitating the utilisation of specialised machinery capable of handling small-scale dimensions and accommodating the high-throughput demands of the iterative design process. Remarkably, one ring prototype demanded the creation of over 250 iterations, owing to its intricacy, characterised by numerous internal gears interlocking via sub-millimeter teeth. Tariq Riaz does not adhere to conventional ring production methods, wherein each ring is manufactured as a single piece. Instead, he assembles some rings from as many as 70 individual components. Initially, the prototyping process predominantly relied on Tariq's Form 2 3D printer, utilising Grey Resin and Clear Resin materials, with subsequent polishing. Subsequently, he transitioned to wax injectors and casting machines. Incorporating 3D printing into his craftsmanship has significantly contributed to cost reduction and time savings. With the utilisation of the Form 3 printer, Riaz has gained the ability to iterate rapidly, a fundamental requirement for his highly iterative design-intensive process. Impressively, he can produce multiple rings within a span of three hours. The fusion of technical expertise with a deep-seated passion for creativity has propelled Tariq Riaz to attain global acclaim. As his production scale continues to expand, Riaz remains reliant on his Form 3 printers. While Tariq Riaz initially entered the industry without...
