3 Benefits of Using CAD Systems in Jewelry Design, Manhattan, New York

Every piece of jewelry starts with a design, which is traditionally done in pencil or watercolors. However, technological advancements have led to some cutting-edge breakthroughs, including the use of CAD systems to deliver highly accurate, extremely flexible designs. These programs, also known as Computer Aided Design systems, provide jewelers and their clients with a wide array of impressive benefits.

3 Advantages of Using CAD Systems

1. Highly Detailed 3D Models

Unlike drawings and other renderings, CAD systems allow designers to create 3D models, which can be easily adapted and manipulated. These models boast an extremely high level of detail and can be turned so clients can see the piece from every angle, ensuring that you'll be satisfied with the final result.  Here at Frank Billanti Casting Co., Inc. we use only high resolution printers providing the best quality and excellence.

2. Endless Variations

cad systemDesigns produced using CAD software can be saved at any point before being altered. Because these changes don't overwrite the original file, a designer can easily produce an endless variety of options and variations. This feature allows them to present clients with several different versions of the piece, incorporating an array of ideas and techniques. In addition to giving private clients the ability to visualize their pieces, CAD designs also lower the design costs associated with developing product lines with subtle variations on a similar theme.

3. Cost Savings & Faster Turnaround

CAD systems dramatically reduce the time and effort required to design high-quality, beautiful custom jewelry, resulting in lower costs for customers. With this technology, jewelers can make one-of-a-kind pieces accessible to a wider range of individuals and small businesses.  Feel free to email your design files and receive a quote within 24 hours.
