  • Details

    Effective, intuitive and complete, its innovative functions and professional tools make 3DESIGN CAD the most adapted and effective solution to improve your design and production methods:

    • A historic construction tree and unique associative/parametric tecbnology on the market: easily create your pieces and ranges. Modify them at any stage, even days later, without having to restart your creation.
    • A clear and intuitive interface: it allows fast learning of 3DESIGN CAD and the production of unique pieces in less time.
    • Works on Mac and PC platforms
    • From 2D to 3D: In just a few clicks go from 2D (sketch, photo, etc) to the producton of your object in 3D
    • A library of varied objects: let your imagination run wild and create all sorts of original pieces. Bring your library to life, enrich it with your own creations. A library of Swarovski elements is also integrated.
    • A 3D visualisation and animation module: highlight and present your pieces thanks to photo rendering. 
    • Multiple file import and export options (you can create pieces in other "mechanical" CAD software and import them in 3DESIGN to use the professional jewelling functions for example). Or you can export your creation in STL or STEP/IGES (among others) for production.

    3DESIGN highlights your creativity!

    Whatever your strategy, our functions allow you to construct your models:

    • Create a sketch with the dedicated "Draft Kit" module
    • Use numerous "professional assistants" to create your ring bodies, stones, jewelling and cut-outs, honeycomb, sizing, etc
    • Use the catalogue of components and assemble them to create new pieces
    • Import your 3D files and continue modelling in 3DESIGN (or 3SHAPER)
    • Create and customise your own stone, metal, weight, plating, cost reports

    and achieve a quality creation.

Modify one or more parameters and 3DESIGN recalculates your entire model in a few seconds. Infinite retouches and changes possible when it suits you!

    Some Jewellery Functions

    Ring body

    A simple function to solve a real dilemma: closing your rings harmoniously. Start with a finger size, a curve, launch the function and that's it!

    3DESIGN wrap unwrap


    A revolution in creation! Easily wrap and unwrap a texture on any 2D or 3D shape.

    3design 4 views

    Advanced ring body

    Your new favourite tool! An essential function for constructing a ring from a profile view, front view and a view of one or more sections. Ideal for rings as well as any 3D object.

    "You and Me" creative assistant

    An incredible time saving leaving time for creation.
    You can use this function in two different ways:

    • By going to the end of the function to obtain creation straight into 3D.
    • By easily creating scanning rails over which you have full control.

    "Twist" creative assistant

    Filigree effects, twisting, woven constructions, your needs are recurrent and very varied. Using the twisting tool, it is a motif twisted on itself or the interlinking of several threads over a curve which will be created. It's easy, obvious, addictive!

    The shaping envelope

    From flower petals shaped by the wind, you can create a shape by working on its overall volume.
    You just need to create an envelope comprising more or less links which you can move to shape your object.
    New modelling ideas for an even more intuitive creation!

What our clients say

3DESIGN CAD has allowed me to come closer to the perfection that every jeweller desires. Good visualisation of my design, and accuracy while working with the design. It enables me to modify my designs until achieving the satisfied result and saving a lot of valuable time.

3DESIGN provides excellent tools, all of which help me achieve great quality designs, service and support. It is so gratifying!

This technology that has lifted up a generation to a new and prosperous future. Well Done. I am so grateful that this software has come my way, to experience and heighten my prospects for success.
Roni Cohavi - Cohavi Jewellery - Australia
I have identified many assets to the software: speed, userfriendliness, powerful, intuitive modules (especially the rendering module). These capabilities are absolutely necessary for me to complete my orders.

3DESIGN is my primary work tool, I cannot make a mistake choosing it.

Many reasons pushed me towards new technologies but my objective was mainly to improve quality, creation time and to design entire ranges easily and more rapidly. And I did take the good decision.
