CAD Jewelry Design & Creation

Learn to transform your jewelry ideas into a reality in a 10 day course.

Next Course Begins: 20 Apr 2020 / 2250 USD

About The Course

The CAD Jewelry Design & Creation Program is designed to introduce designers to the Matrix Gold Computer Aided Design software.


The program is created by industry experts who manufactured jewelry for leading brands worldwide and is focused on not only creating 3D models, but engineering them for manufacture-ability.


Assuming zero CAD knowledge, a student can expect to leave the course being able to build their own 3D jewelry models from scratch. Students will leave the course with a solid foundation which they will be able to build upon through practice.


Who Should Take The Course

The CAD Jewelry Design & Creation Program has been developed for industry professionals, aspiring designers, and gemstone enthusiasts who are interested in designing mountings for their collections.


Industry Professionals: Will learn how to consider manufacturing needs in the design process such as scaling for shrinkage and polishing.


Designers: Designers from any background will benefit from the foundation of CAD design that will be covered in this course, much of which can be equally applied to other CAD fields and software.
