Unique-shaped gemstones add a dazzling touch to jewelry pieces, but can be a challenge. The B9 Scan 350 enables jewelers to accommodate every angle, creating a uniform design while cutting down on design and prototyping time by 80%.
When a new product idea has the potential to simplify, modify, or improve the current market, (like when B9Creations emerged in 2011!), that idea shouldn’t just stay an idea. It needs to be conceptualized, analyzed, iterated, and finalized so it can be brought to market sooner and get started changing the world.
Engineers, manufacturers, and prototypers have specific standards that must be met when they are looking for a photopolymer resin to use in their DLP 3D printer. That's why we've developed a suite of products and materials that focus on standards like strength, dimensional accuracy, crispness, high detail, and speed.
B9Creations products won’t do you any good if they’re sitting in our factory! We want to make it as easy as possible for you to own a 3D printer and invest in your business with the productivity that B9Creations products bring. That’s why we offer many financing options for our customers – so you get the payment that fits your business and budget.
We love the B9Creator. It’s where we got our start. Because of that machine, we're where we are today – in 66 countries making 3D printing easier and faster than ever, all thanks to valued customers like you. That’s why when we went to build a new machine, we wanted to know what mattered most to you.
B9Creations is continually growing and improving, responding to the needs and recommendations from customers just like you. Our networks of jewelers, prototypers, researchers, manufacturers, and model makers are constantly providing feedback and suggesting ways that we can make your businesses more efficient and profitable.

3D printers have taken the world by storm – quickly being adopted around the globe for manufacturing, jewelry, model-making, research, and more because of their functionality and efficiency. B9Creations 3D printers have been spotted in over 52 countries worldwide, and sharing this technology with so many different cultures is worth being celebrated.
Before the B9Creator was even a twinkle in Founder and Creator Michael Joyce’s eye, Mike already had a long-standing passion for creating things.As a child, he was commonly found watching in awe as his father and others built jets and rockets that would allow men to explore space and walk on the moon.
Every 3D printer buyer should know what to consider when deciding on a printer, whether their purpose is for lost wax casting, manufacturing, medical, prototyping, research, model making, or beyond.
A few of the key terms regarding 3D printing are resolution, speed, and cost, but what do these really mean and why do these really matter?
Just like the rest of the products we offer at B9Creations, we want to make sure you’re getting the most out of the B9Create Software.
Therefore, we've developed keyboard and mouse shortcuts within the software that help you maximize efficiency, multitasking, and precision.
Over six years ago, B9Creations Founder Mike Joyce recognized that there was a large gap in the 3D printing industry when it came to quickly producing high-resolution prints with low-cost technology, especially when it came to resin-based printers.
For the past few years, 3D printing — also known as additive manufacturing — has empowered dreamers to turn their visions into reality. Everyday consumers hear the buzz surrounding 3D printing but have limited knowledge about the process. For those looking to broaden their understanding of 3D printing, here is a guide to the three most common 3D printing processes.
Made In Space™ successfully printed electronics, casted metal, 3D printed using stereolithography, bioprinted, and processed manufacturing by products.
The B9Creator helps the University of Freiburg, Germany by incorporating 3D printing technology to the fabrication of optical structures by testing different material compositions which affect the optical quality and mechanical flexibility.
In the spring of 2016, B9Creations CEO, Shon Anderson, traveled to London for the iMakr Desktop 3D Printing Show and spoke with 3D Printing Industry about company insights on how far B9Creations has come and where we plan on going.
Are you tired of falling subject to shady contracts, pricey service fees, and required maintenance agreements?
South Dakota based 3D printing company, B9Creations, turned an opportunity into a successful, globally known enterprise.
Founder Mike Joyce retired from the Air Force and decided to settle in the Black Hills area, strongly introducing his 3D printer company after building it from the ground up.
"Basically, Mike was looking for a better quality, more affordable product because everything available at the time was and still is rather expensive. So he used his background in mathematics and software development to build and refine a prototype for his own high-resolution 3D printer," Anderson said. "And B9Creations was born."
The Way Ahead
"Using latest DLP - SLA 3D printing technology providing high-precision printing and castable materials allows jewellery manufacturers and custom retailers to meet the growing demand for custom work. Consumers want one-of-a- kind pieces that they helped to create. Intricate detail, stunning symmetry and precision, which was never possible with hand carving, are all achievable with today’s 3D printers.” - Guarav Loyalka, Novabeans
