CAD/CAM in 2016: CAD Culture

 

CAD CULTURE: CHRIS WINSPEAR Q&A

Strengths and unique selling points?
Cad Culture offers high-quality alloys that are suitable for casting and hand-fabrication. We cast every day in 9, 14 and 18-carat white, yellow and rose gold, as well as platinum and palladium. We also pride ourselves on our commitment to great customer service and are focused on quick turnaround times.

What is the typical turnaround time?
CAD turnaround is generally 2–3 days and casting turnaround is also 3 days. We strive to maintain the fastest possible turnaround times for our clients.

What can affect this timing and how can customers help?
We ask customers to send as much information as possible in the original brief as this reduces the need for potential additional changes.

What formats does your software accept?
The software we use accepts 3DM, STL and OJB file formats.

What assistance is there for designers to take ideas from concept to creation?
Our CAD service is perfectly suited for this very requirement. We encourage customers to send through all reference material like photographs, rendered images and sketches in order to best understand what the client is after, as well as any other specific measurements and requirements.

From there we begin the CAD design process and once we have the model, we send the customer images of the design. This stage allows for any tweaks that might be required. The production process then begins, starting with 3D printing and followed by the casting process. The end result is the item cast up in the metal of the customer’s choice.

Is the customer’s model secure or can it be resold to, or be reused by, other clients?
All intellectual property is never re-used for other clients or any other application whatsoever. This is extremely important to us and we take security in this area very seriously.

Do you offer in-house completion of a product for non-bench jeweller CAD designers?
Not at this stage but we are exploring the possibilities of providing this service to our customers.

How is CAD/CAM likely to further evolve in your business?
We pride ourselves on pushing boundaries and exploring new options in order to put out the best possible product.

We are always scouting for developments in both software and hardware applications. New developments in technology can help to contribute to better product quality and faster turnaround times.
