Matrix is also different.

The entire Gemvision approach to jewelry design software is different. Everyone recognizes the growing role of computer technology in the creation and selling of jewelry. But who do you trust to take your business to the next level as a partner in your long-term CAD success? We don't just sell software, we give you the tools and knowledge to innovate and improve virtually every aspect of your business.

How it Works

1 Start by designing your CAD file in Matrix

Matrix provides jewelry-specific and jeweler-friendly tools to design virtual 3D jewelry on screen and create photo-realistic images of your designs. It combines the raw CAD power of Rhino 3D, the organic modeling of T-Splines, the stunning render images of V-Ray, and our own proprietary technology to create the ultimate 3D jewelry creation tool.

2 Then use any of these methods (or a combination of these methods)

Outsource CAM

Send your CAD file to a service provider for CAM output or even casting. They ship back your casting or model.

Do Your Own CAM

Produce a wax model of your CAD file using your own CAM machine such as the Revo540CX. Then cast it yourself or outsource it.

Build it Yourself

Visualize the design in Matrix then hand carve and fabricate it yourself at the bench.
