3d jewelry design is the art or profession of designing or rendering
designs for jewelry in a 3d environment. The ancient practice of the
goldsmith or metalworker evolved to a billion-dollar industry with the
odyssey from ancient techniques into the machine age where computers
are being used in the design of jewelry. It is easy with the use of
CAD design software
to create "functional art", being art that can be worn or
is CAD design important today?
an article of jewelry is created, it is rendered by a professional
3d designer who is trained in the appropriate fields of architectural
and functional knowledge including metallurgy and design elements
such as composition and wearability.
the article is rendered, the design is then constructed using the needed
materials for proper adaptation to the function of the item. For example,
24K Gold was used in ancient 3d jewelry
model because it was more available than silver as source material.
Before the 1st century many civilizations also incorporated beads into
jewelry. Once the discovery of gemstones and gem cutting became more
readily available, 2. the art of jewelry ornamentation and design shifted.
The earliest documented gemstone cut was done by Theophilus Presbyter
(c.1070 - 1125). who practiced and established many applied arts and
was a known goldsmith. Later, during the 14th Century, medieval lapidary
techniques evolved to include cabochons and cameos.
Early CAD design
was often made for the rich part of society. These early techniques
created a specific complex design element that later would forge the
baroque element in 3d jewelry
CAD is used in the design of tools and machinery and in the drafting and
design of all types of buildings, from small residential types (houses)
to the largest commercial and industrial structures (hospitals and factories).CAD
is mainly used for detailed engineering of 3D models and/or 2D drawings
of physical components, but it is also used throughout the engineering
process from conceptual design and layout of products, through strength
and dynamic analysis of assemblies to definition of manufacturing methods
of components.CAD has become an especially important technology within
the scope of computer-aided technologies, with benefits such as lower
product development costs and a greatly shortened design cycle. CAD enables
designers to lay out and develop work on screen, print it out and save
it for future editing, saving time on their drawings.
