A Computer Aided Design and Manufacture Software for Jewellery
JewelCAD is a 3D free-form surface based solid modeler. It provides powerful free-form modeling tools that allow freedom in creating artistic and stylish designs. These tools are flexible and intuitive and they can be easily learned and used.
Non-engineering approach for easy learning and fast operation
Only basic knowledge in computers will be sufficient to master the software in several weeks.
Abundant movie-like demonstrations for learning various skills and techniques in building models.
Very simple graphic user interface and intuitive functions.
The most popular CAD/CAM software for the Jewellery industry world
Global distribution network to cover most Jewellery manufacturing countries and regions
By the Q3 of 2003, about 1880 licenses are being deployed in Jewellery & Gold industries, Educational Institutions, Universities, Service Bureaus and Design Studios around the world
Books of Jewellery designs with photo quality images generated by JewelCAD are being published and distributed.
Powerful modeling functions for complicated designs
Flexible and advanced modeling functions to create and modify curves and surfaces
Special functions for designing necklaces, twisting surfaces and stone settings
Simple and easy function for free-form surface cutting and subtracting
Built-in design components library for expediting design process
Stones and Mountings libraries
Basic parts and components libraries
Scalability for user library
Ability to generate new designs by extracting parts or components from finished designs.
Single integrated solution for Design, Photo-realistic rendering, CNC machining and Rapid Prototyping output for manufacturing
Allow 3-Dimensional viewing and manipulation of models
Fast and easy to output high quality photo-realistic color images
Calculate the weight and count the number of stones of a design piece
Output standard GM-code, Roland MDX code and slicing STL data for CNC 3-axis and rotary axis machining
Output standard and seamless slicing STL and SLC data for Rapid Prototyping (T612/66 from Solidscape, Inc. www.solid-scape.com , Invision HR from 3D Systems http://www.3dsystems.com/ and Perfactory machine from EnvisionTec GmbH http://www.envisiontec.de/ are often used as the Rapid Prototyping output for JewelCAD SLC data)
Pentium, or higher processors.
The minimum requirement is Pentium 4 CPU, 512MB RAM, 24 bit color with 1024x768 resolution supporting OpenGL. The suggested configuration is Pentium D CPU or above, 1GB RAM or above, 24-bit or 32 bit color display card with 1024x768 resolution (or higher), 128MB RAM (or above), supporting OpenGL.
* JewelCAD will not be ported to any other operating systems, but JewelCAD does run on Apple Macs with Virtual PC
