Jewellery designing is the art and profession of designing and creating jewellery- you need that vision and creativity to design unique and elegant jewellery designs.
Art has taken many forms throughout the centuries, from the simple beadwork of ancient times to the sophisticated metalworking and gem cutting are known in the modern days.
Traditional hand-drawing and drafting methods are still used in designing jewellery at the conceptual stage particularly, wherein the designer conveys the exact idea of his design by illustrating it precisely and accurately, keeping the sizes and proportions in mind. The traditional hand-illustrated jewellery is typically transformed into wax or metal by a skilled craftsman.
With technology overtaking manpower, a shift is taking place from hand-drafting to computer-aided design software like Rhinoceros 3D and Matrix. A CAD model is generally used as the basis for a CNC cut or 3D printed ‘wax’ pattern to be used in the rubber moulding or lost wax casting processes.
CAD is a shortening form of Computer-Aided Design. It refers to all methods of using computer software to design and create virtual models and creative products. There is a variety of useful software with specific features for designing products for particular applications.
Before the Manufacturing phase, every detail of the design must be ready. This ensures that there will be no backward to correct faults. Designing traditionally, requires hand drawing, paper and pen. Correction of errors, changing details and such things will add a lot of work. Using CAD instead of the old fashion way reduces a dramatic load of work.
Tools and plugins in the software will increase the usage of time. Generally designing on the computer is easier and faster than drawing with a pencil. Imagine you are going to redesign a corner of jewellery, by using a computer rather than a pencil and an eraser.
Saving time in designing brings productivity, too. Repeatability and modifying an old version of the design to create a unique piece of jewellery.
CAD software provides a fully geometrical accurate jewellery model from the beginning to the very last stage. This feature will help designers to design complicated and custom-made pieces as they are called “Bespoke” in Europe.
Usually, the software has different kinds of tools to correct common design mistakes. It will save designers more time and also money. In CAD there will be no forgetting details.
Have a coffee break, the checking tools will warn you about everything.
The power of rendering is undeniable, especially in bespoke designs and pieces. Rendering will enhance your customer Experience. She/he can take an exact look at what they are about to purchase before holding its physical form.
A 360-degree animation of your jewellery piece has a great impact on the visions of the customers.
Designing jewellery or any other products can be dreamy enough to make their imaginations come true, with appropriate functionality. Something that maybe is not possible by sketches.
3D Modeling in CAD is more understandable than traditional sketches even though the drawing is complicated. This view can be a little hard as it requires physical sketches as a minimum of three sketches (plan, elevation, and side view) to give the general idea of the designs.
Also, CAD models are the best way for designers to showcase their designs and ability. These renders and CAD models can play a marketing role without any real prototype.
In traditional jewellery designing methods, designers are bound to carrying a bunch of stuff into the office or meet with customers That would be exhausting on both parts. A complete piece of jewellery in the 3D version on the laptop will give you and the customer a closer look at what is going to be manufactured. Also, CAD files are really easy to collaborate between team members who work on the same product.
