Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is used to create a 3D model of the product using CAM software. Previously, due to the high costs and difficulty in using it, it was only available to industries such as vehicle manufacturing. As technology becomes more widely available, CAM has been completely integrated within our jewelry manufacturing process.
Here is a list of where CAM is used:
Modifying existing models: allows for changes to be made.
Geometrical and revolution shapes: creates perfectly geometrical shapes
Ring size: can create a master for each size easier
A precision setting like pave: allows for perfect straight lines and even gaps
Rendering image: images of the model with different materials and stones
