How It’s Made

In the beginning, a 3D model for Clicker Ring was created as a base design to accommodate a one-size-fits-all plate. From there, the model can now be used to create affordable standard models, as well as high end custom orders. You can send us pictures of your inspirations or download a template to print, color and send back to us with your unique concept.

After contacting us to place your deposit, our designers will create your model. Meanwhile, we’ll send you a sample sizing kit to ensure we get it just right the first time. Once complete, we’ll confirm the design is to your liking and make it!

Step 1

The base model is made from injecting wax into a silicone mold, created in-house. The custom models are made from a castable resin and outsourced from a 3D printing service, providing the highest detail possible.
