How is it done?:
model design (CAD)
and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) is the use
of computer technology to aid in the model design
and especially the drafting (technical drawing and
engineering drawing) of a part or product. Current
CAD/CAM software systems are capable to present
3D solid and surface forms. Modern CAD/CAM packages
can also frequently allow rotations in three dimensions,
allowing viewing of a designed object from any desired
angle, even from the inside looking out.
CAD/CAM is used in the
model design of
complex creations of jewelry as well as in simple
CAD/CAM has become an especially important technology
within the scope of computer-aided technologies,
with benefits such as lower product development
costs and a greatly shortened development cycle.
CAD/CAM enables artists to lay out and develop work
on screen, print it out and save it for future editing,
saving time on their drawings.
Our engineers are crafting in CAD/CAM software
such as the latest generation of Rhino and Matrix.
Because of the high cost of rapid prototyping
equipment and the high level of technical expertise
required to reliably produce perfect parts, the
trend is to use specialized third-party service
We offer reduced time and cost for artists and their
clients with state-of-the-art technology. Our machines
build wax models, suchas Jewelry
Models, from computer files using thermoplastics
that are perfect components for investment casting.

Our systems reduce cost and time-to-market by translating
CAD Designs into hard
copy 3D models. These models are so accurate that
jewellery designers can go beyond concept modeling
to produce tooling grade patterns ready for casting
Jointly CAD/CAM allows the crafting of jewelry using
a computer (CAD) and creates an exact hard copy
model of a jewelry piece using a computer controlled
manufacturing device (CAM).
Our technicians utilize all file types compatible
with any CAM device, which allows us to quickly
generate a precise wax model ready for casting.
Stereolithography and these other hard model technologies
are the future of the jewelry industry. Leading
jewelers effectively use CAM "service bureaus"
that specialize in prototype output.
Our technicians have been in the jewelry business
since 1983, operating in various branches of the
industry. We are some of the finest jewelry manufacturers
and jewelers in the industry.
The term is often tied to the various applied arts
and engineering. As a verb, "to design"
refers to the process of originating and developing
a plan for a product, structure, system, or component
with intention. As a noun, "a design"
is used for either the final (solution) plan (e.g.
proposal, drawing, model, description) or the result
of implementing that plan in the form of the final
product of a design proces. This classification
aside, in its broadest sense no other limitations
exist and the final product can be anything from
socks and jewellery to graphical user interfaces
and charts. Even virtual concepts such as corporate
identity and cultural traditions such as celebration
of certain holidays are sometimes designed. More
recently, processes (in general) have also been
treated as products of design, giving new meaning
to the term "process design".
The person designing is called a designer, which
is also a term used for people who work professionally
in one of the various design
areas, usually also specifying which area is being
Designing often requires a designer to consider
the aesthetic, functional, and many other aspects
of an object or a process, which usually requires
considerable research, thought, modeling, interactive
adjustment, and re-design.
Being defined so broadly, there is no universal
language or unifying institution for designers of
all disciplines. This allows for many differing
philosophies and approaches toward the subject.
However, serious study of design demands increased
focus on the design process.
With our fist-hand knowledge and experience throughout
model design with controlling the manufacturing
process from start to finish, we deliver quality.
