    Effective, intuitive and complete, its innovative features and professional tools make 3DESIGN CAD the most adapted and effective CAD 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: allowing 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 production of your designs in 3D.
    • Libraries of varied objects: let your imagination run wild and create all sorts of original pieces. Bring your libraries to life, enrich them with your own creations. A library of Swarovski elements is also integrated.
    • A 3D visualization and animation module: highlight and present your pieces thanks to photo realistic 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 jeweling features for example). Or you can export your creation in STL or STEP/IGES (among many others) towards production.

    3DESIGN highlights your creativity!

    Whatever your strategy, our features allow you to construct your own models:

    • Create a sketch with the dedicated "Draft Kit" module,

    • 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 customize your own stones, metals, varying weight, plating, and edit accurate cost reports.

    and achieve a high quality creation.

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.
