The 3D CAD solution for jewellery design

A unique software solution, dedicated to jewellery

3DESIGN CAD is a powerful solution for 3D jewel creation. Designed for and by jewellers, it allows you to create new models with a complete freedom, and to produce exquisite pieces.


3DESIGN CAD suits best creators and designers from the jewellery industry. It is also the most adapted solution for producers and other distributors of jewellery pieces who reap the benefits of all the professional features offered by 3DESIGN CAD. Schools are also important and privileged partners for us. They train future creators/jewellers and introduce them to new technologies such as 3DESIGN CAD.

Available languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian, Chinese (from China and from Taïwan), Korean, Hungarian, Japanese, Czech, German, Russian, Greek, Polish

Various creation modes: with a sketch, the components' libraries, free creation.

"Associative" technology / Parametric Construction Tree: The construction tree is the memory of all the operations and functions the operator used to create his piece. At any moment, you can come back, re-edit an operation, change an element or a dimension, make a distortion, etc. In a few clicks, you can create an entire set of jewels.

Rendering module: The Advanced Rendering Module allows designers to virtually showcase their creations. They can validate their models with their clients, insert them into catalogues, create ultra realistic renders as well as videos, 3D Flash animations and interactive animations to manipulate as you wish with a mouse.

Import formats: Step, Sat, IGES, Rhino, STL, EPS, PNG, etc.

Export formats: STL, SAT, JPEG, Rhino, PNG, etc.
