Leading Jewelry 3D software solution
Home arrow Corporate


In 1988, Type3 was born with the idea to introduce traditional artistic typography into the world of industrial manufacturing. Its mission was from the start: to create a bridge between the graphic arts and the industry with its Type3 artistic CAD/CAM software.

In 1999, jewelers were already satisfied customers thanks to our Type3 innovative solutions in engraving and marking applications. But the jewelry industry was beginning its shift towards new technologies and methods and we decided to create a specific solution dedicated to 3D jewelry creation.

This new solution we were about to develop would be the most forward-thinking one could imagine. It would include the most modern technologies available, targeted professional tools, be user-friendly, multiplatform and evolving. At the time, Y3K was the code name for this project and 9.9.99 was the date our company chose to announce the news to our subsidiaries and partners.

Today, 3DESIGN is the most powerful, professional, modern and unrivalled software for 3D real time jewelry and graphic object creation.
