CAD (Computer-Aided Design)


The CAD profession in jewelry is one of the first steps in the jewelry production chain. It involves the design and production of visual aids and technical data sheets, which are essential for the creation of jewelry models.

First of all, a 3D designer analyzes the customer’s request and interprets it with the help of the available documents. Then, he or she uses specifications, line drawings, photos or even sketches illustrating the essence of the project.

The first challenge is to transform this creative intention into a first digital realization that respects all the elements required to manufacture the part in question.

Several adjustments are made progressively to finalize the model and offer realistic renderings that are ready for use.

For the most part, the final rendering is in the form of a precisely modeled jewelry model or prototype that respects budgetary, time and manufacturing constraints.
