Abstract


The ability to manufacture any product shape generated by a 3D CAD system, using very sophisticated additive manufacturing techniques, is leading to a new era of Manufacturing for Design. This paper explores the use of these techniques for the production of customised jewellery products. A computational tool for jewellery design, to help manufactures and customers to fabricate novel jewellery pieces, is also presented. This computational tool allows the implementation of e-fabrication strategies by linking jewellery design to manufacturing stages.
