Development of a CAD-based jewellery design system

By S. H. Masood, P. Nawamawat and D. K. Shanmugam


In the conventional method for design and production in jewellery industry, it is difficult to create new designs due to lack of modern technology and intelligent equipment and software. The development of a jewellery design system is presented for a modern ornament industry by adopting new technologies and modem equipment in CAD/CAM. The technique is verified by the examples of actual jewellery design by the system and then producing it by lost wax investment casting method using wax pattern created by a rapid prototyping system instead of the traditional method of mould injection. This CAD based system of development of modern jewellery design offers advantages of flexibility in creating more variety of design and the ability to produce intricate shape conveniently. The work demonstrates the application of CAD/CAM tools and rapid prototyping as the most powerful tools in jewellery design and production
