166 3D Jewlery Models!

These 3D jewelry models were designed by two people that are not bench jewelers or experienced jewelry designers. Pol Subanajouy did 3/4 of these models and I did the rest. He modeled that mans bust with the red eyes. Wow! About one third were put into metal. Some had planned and unplanned changes to the wax after milling or growing. Most people use them to learn how to model better or as an inspiration to create something new.

They are in Rhino 3DM format. You need Rhino 3D CAD software to view and change them. We used Gemvision’s Matrix to model most of these. This software is based on Rhino.

1.) How do you use these CAD models to make a wax model?

A service bureau or jeweler with CNC mill or prototyping machine would build the model. The CNC mills output normal carving wax. There are many types of prototyping machines, each outputting a different physical wax/plastic model. Some can be directly cast and others have to mold cast first.

2.) Can I take your models and send them directly to be built in real life?

I think your going to find that almost all of the 3D models need to be changed when you get a real life order. I have come to the conclusion though there is no perfect model when it comes to proper physical dimensions. Independent goldsmiths and diamond setters all have a little bit of a different opinion. Something is always different like:

The ring size.
Different sizes of stones needed to be used.
The preference of the goldsmith & diamond setter in which the way model is to be built.
The customer wanting something a little different.
Changes due to metal type.

3.) What is the biggest use of the Models?

Training examples on how to build a similar model.
To use parts of the model to build a similar model.
Inspiration designing new models.
To sell a similar ring. (More food for the Catalog/Gallery)
Rarely, to use directly in manufacture.
Example models for rendering.

4.) How can I tell the size and the measurements of the gemstones you used in your models?

You can open them in Rhino 3D. It's free for viewing files like these.
