Computer Aided Design (CAD)
allows a user to design, modify, and simulate a three-dimensional part or assembly.
CAD is a creative design process that is based on a computer system. This design process uses computer technology and powerful software to assist jewelry professionals in the design and drawing of three-dimensional items. These pieces are built in virtual space using the X, Y, and Z axis. By connecting these selected points the new item emerges. Computer aided design is also referred to as Computer aided drafting.
This amazing technology has created a revolution in jewelry design and manufacturing. Never before has the level of perfection and creativity been so high. Designers are now creating incredible jewelry that a few years ago could have only been a dream.
