Custom Jewelry Design
One of the most exciting and rewarding jobs for us is bringing a custom design to life. Every step is done in close partnership with you to ensure that the end product is just right. Perhaps you have imagined your perfect piece but have never seen anything like it in a store. The first step to making your idea a reality is coming to Ashley Lauren Fine Jewelers. Bring a sketch, a photo or an idea in your head, and we'll begin to lay out the plans.
After an idea has been sketched, Bob turns to Computer-aided Design (CAD) to create a 3D design of your piece. With your approval, the design will be 3D printed on-site. Our printer uses UV light to cure the resin between printed layers.
We then invest the print, using a plaster-like substance, and burn it out in a kiln. After this, the casting of your piece can be done. To finish off the piece, Bob will set stones, file and polish the piece.
3D Modeling and Printing
Our CAD/CAM Studio is equipped with a workstation and our 3D Printers.
We utilize the powerful tools of Rhino Gold 6 and render our designs using Brazil and Arion.
Rhino Gold 6 provides jewelry-specific and jeweler-friendly tools to design virtual 3D jewelry on screen and create photo-realistic images of the designs. It combines the raw CAD power of Rhino 3D, the organic modeling of Clayoo, the stunning render images of Arion, and their own proprietary technology to create the ultimate 3D jewelry creation tool.
