CAD (Computer-Aided Design)
About the process...
Previously, all designs were carved by hand or assembled from parts. Now we have the freedom to create these designs using a 3D modeling software. This gives us the ability to see a finished product without having to make it to completion first.
After creating a style, the render gives us a life-like image that helps to decide on the final touches such as stone choice.
After the render is decided, we have a wax made and a casting completed. Each piece is hand-finished and every stone hand-set. The computer design allows a precision in each piece that can not be matched by hand-carving. We will be continuing to introduce these new pieces into the NellMarie collections
