News Release-Monday, February 12-Glencoe, IL
Digital Jeweler, LLC is pleased to announce the successful beta introduction of it's patent pending online jewelry manufacturing technology.
By providing real time server side manipulation of elastometric jewelry CAD models, we have created a powerful, simple, and inexpensive way for jewelers around the country to leverage the power of CAD/CAM technology without the learning curve or investment in time and capital associated with current CAD/CAM solutions. The elastometric models have goldsmith intelligence engineered into them in order to guarantee a good result from a technical and aesthetic perspective. Jewelers need only input the stone size requirements, finger size, shank design and width, and various other pre-engineered options. For the first time, salespeople and end users can design and manufacture custom jewelry without the aid of a goldsmith or CAD engineer. No knowledge of either goldsmithing techniques or the underlying CAD software is required.
Once the variables have been entered, Digital Jewelertm recreates the CAD model to the specifications and outputs both rendered images and a rotatable file for viewing. The jeweler then has the option of storing the results in an online file cabinet for later retrieval or ordering the fully customized piece of jewelry. If the order option is pursued, Digital Jeweler, LLC then creates a castable wax pattern using Rapid Manufacturing 3D printing technology, casts the wax in precious metal, and ships the polished mounting to the jeweler in 6 days ready for stone setting. Other options include the purchase of the side or center gemstones and Digital Jewelertm will set these purchased stones prior to shipping.
Steven Pollack, president of Digital Jeweler, LLC in conjunction with technology partner Configure One, LLC, Oak Brook, IL. have created the means for mass customization in a highly scalable internet environment.
