Digital Jewellery Design

Computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD and CAM) processes are revolutionising jewellery today. Freelance designers can produce one-of-a-kind jewellery at a fraction of the cost and jewellery manufacturers can increase production time and quality well beyond what was possible using traditional hand crafting. Understand the designs and materials that lend themselves well to CAD/CAM as well as both conceptual and practical methods for achieving quality results when using these methods.

Gain this knowledge using industry-leading CAD software by Gemvision: Matrix VII. Together with software skills, learn useful sizes, shapes and measurements and gain substantial experience designing jewellery to specifications and preparing designs for production. This program culminates in the design & production of your own fine design!
