Here’s my first attempt at designing a ring using 3D CAD software.
I had a customer ask me to set a Herkimer Diamond she mined along with some Blue & White Sapphires.
After trying to make the setting several ways at the bench, I moved on to the software.
Once I designed it I sent the STL file to a company in Belgium to be printed and cast in sterling.
It came out perfect.
Here’s the concept drawing and the final results pics.
