An Introduction :

Which CAD Software for Jewellery Design?

Deciding which CAD design software will be suitable for you and your work is an important decision that should not be rushed.


Your choice of software depends on your style of work, how many and what type of tools you require for design or production shortcuts, and what will suit you in future as your work develops.

After doing some research and nearing your decision try out the design software on a laptop with one-to-one unbiased tutor guidance.

For your 1-day course select one or two CAD software options from the list below and get a feel for each software's  design process with tutor guidance. By doing this you should be able to determine the possibilities a software has for your style of work before you go to the expense of buying any particular software.

These jewellery specific softwares are all suitable for creating jewellery STL design files and are at different price points. 

  • Rhino 5

  • ARTCam Jewelsmith

  • JewelCAD
