1. Identify customer needs
Jewelry design generally begins with hand-painted drawings. Later, the design team will continue to refine and adjust based on this.
2. Scanning gems
For customized customers, we need to scan the gem first to obtain accurate size, facet distribution, and 3D structure data. Designers can easily call the model in the CAD start stage to carry out the design of stone arrangement positioning and virtual assembly.
3. Using CAD jewelry design software to start the design
Jewelry design CAD software can be used for modeling design, quick stone arrangement, and other operations. It can use its preset parametric module to quickly generate inlays, gems, rings, or standard parts, greatly improving the design efficiency and accuracy.
4. Making stencils
The 3D model designed by CAD is output to the 3D printer, which can quickly and accurately print the stencil.
The lost wax casting method (also known as precision casting) is used to make castings.
6. Hold the mold
The main tasks are: modifying and repairing the defects of the workpiece, shaping and welding the workpiece, preliminary polishing the surface of the casting, assembling jewelry accessories, and so on. Prepare the required castings for trimming, grinding, assembly, and welding of the joint
Once the mold is finished, the inlay process will be started immediately. It is a very important precision process to fix the main stone and matching stone on their respective inlays.
8. Polishing and surface treatment
After the inlay is completed, the final polishing is carried out. Make sure the metal surface is as bright as a mirror. Finally, the laser marking equipment is used to carry out the lettering process at the designated position.
9. Quality inspection
The design team not only needs to inspect the quality of the final product but also needs to control the quality of each stage of jewelry manufacturing, which is absolutely necessary for a perfect design. Quality inspection – check the process quality of each claw and mouth.
See here, you must know something about jewelry design and production A perfect jewelry condenses the painstaking efforts of jewelry designers and craftsmen, which is worthy of your possession!
