3Design Pro & Designer versions

The parametric construction tree within 3Design is a big time-saving factor. Jewelry CAD designers use it as a visual path to build their 3D models. This key feature is available in all 3Design software packages.

Mac or Pc ?

Unable to decide between a Mac or a Pc? Well, there is no need to stress about it as 3Design is compatible with both operating systems. 3D jewelry designers choose their preferred system to fit their style and business model.

Create countless designs

3Design’s library of symbols allows you to create and save any 2D or 3D shape. The great benefit of saving in the library is that you can build your own gallery of elements, like a catalogue, to mix and match or modify at a later stage.

Introducing 3Design CAD Jewelry Design Software

Cutting edge 3D software for jewelry design that will keep your business ahead

Easy to Learn, Easy to Master

“3Design thinks like a jeweler”

Thanks to its visually rendered interface, jewelers feel at ease while using 3Design. You do not need to be an engineer or IT specialist to be using this software. All you need is a vison, perseverance and an idea of how jewelry is put together. Design like the artist that you are!

Completely integrated software

“Using the modules like your workshop tools”

3Design thinks like a jeweler! Tucked away in a virtual drawer within the jeweler’s bench you can find all the tools required to create various settings and shaped rings. If you need more, the solid and the sketch modules interact together building unique items that can be modified at a later stage.

Macintosh and Windows

“The only jewelry CAD solution for Mac”

There is no need to compromise with 3Design. Our unique hybrid platform allows you to run 3Design on Macintosh and Windows. Install on both platforms and share files easily between systems.

Professional Jewelry Tools

“Work in CAD as you would at the bench”

Within the jeweler’s bench, tools such as custom stone builder, advanced pave and microsetting give you the precision required for each of your designs; allowing you to focus on your creation and let 3Design do the hard work.

3Design CAD - Available in 3 packages

Offering you a design package that suits your business needs

PROFESSIONAL VERSION

Ideal for those who are ready to produce their own models for manufacturing

3Design Pro has become the reference in custom jewelry. Pro version enables you to export your files in various manufacturing formats such as IGES, STEP, OBJ and most importantly STL format. STL is the rapid prototyping standard used by 3D printers.

DESIGNER VERSION

Ideal for new designers or additional users. No export option for manufacturing

3Design Designer has all the features of the Pro version except the production file formats. Perfect for new CAD designers and companies with multiple licenses. Files can be sent for 3D printing to a Professional version or to one of our certified service bureaus worldwide.

EDUCATIONAL VERSIONS

Learn jewelry CAD at any given time of your career

Through partnerships in our certified schools we can offer the perfect design environment for CAD jewelry students. The Student version has all the designing tools necessary. With the help of an educator owning a Master version, production is made possible. Our educators tutor help you to thrive at your own pace.

See what our 3Design users think

Shape your designs the way you intend them to be, using 3Design’s tools.

“3Design’s database of realistic materials is not only huge, but it looks virtually the same as the material in real life. The real time material rendering technology on stones while you are working on your designs makes a huge impact on my customers compared to other solutions needing renderings, and I can build new pieces in front of them with a real idea of how it will look once finished.”
“3Design is giving me a greater depth in my work just by seeing the piece in 3 dimensions before it is even made. I can sketch my ideas on paper and transform them in the software by positioning my drawings in any direction I want, then trace them directly and build the shapes I have in mind. It is really for me an intuitive application and thanks to the Training Lounge I can find a lot of jewellery designing tutorials.”
“Time savings are just huge! Compared to other 2D software I used before, it is impressive how CAD can vary. I think I save about a full week worth of works soon as I switched to 3Design CAD and since I have not found a better way to design  new trends. Its user interface worked with me right away and I can understand more and more Jewelers are finding themselves in this solution. It’s a great software to own. Developers really got it.”
“Another important advantage of 3Design we got when introducing the solution to our design team was that it is multi-platform. 3Design runs just the same way on Macintosh & Windows and it has eased the integration among a mostly graphic designer background staff. The switch from an older CAD/CAM was amazingly smooth.”
“I have been looking for a design solution several months and by chance been introduced to 3Design while visiting a friend in Vancouver. I sat for a full day in front of the screen with him while he was designing pair of earrings arranged with a pendant. I tried to grab each tool concept he was using up to the final touch. I then wanted to take control and build something. The user interface really seduced me and the ease of building things in 3D made a huge impact on me and my work. “
