Send a sketch, add a few instructions and a 3D CAD/CAM drawing is in your hands in three business days!
The new company is a division of Galatea: Jewelry by Artist, a California business founded in
1994. Galatea’s founder, Chi Galatea Huynh, has created numerous patented jewelry designs and products found no where else—products including the gemstone-enucleated Galatea Pearl™, Diamond in a Pearl™ and DavinChi Cut™ gemstone collections. Huynh says the inspiration to offer this service to retail jewelers was born out of a desire to help jewelers turn their dreams into reality. “If you can draw it, we can help to take your ideas to the next level,” says Huynh. “Many of my customers have been using this service for years. Now, with a team of dedicated designers, we are offering our modeling service to jewelers, designer and manufacturers everywhere.”
With prices starting at $45.00 for a design that takes up to two hours to complete (a simple ring or pendant, for example), 3D Galatea provides a spectacular 3D rendering and, if desired, a wax model. As a .jpg file, retailers can email the image or share it directly in-store with a consumer. A .3dm file can be further manipulated using Microsoft’s Rhino 3D modeling software, edited as desired or shown to customers from a variety of angles. Volume discounts are also available for jewelers or manufacturers who order more than ten pieces. The same three business-day turnaround time and satisfaction guarantees apply whether ordering one piece or an entire line.
Every 3D drawing also comes with a price for a wax model. All 3D Galatea waxes are made to fit a minimum thickness of .6mm and higher for proper casting, molding and reproduction. Waxes from 3D Galatea are created with the utmost care and consideration for the “hot polish” zones. The company carefully considers every curve, prong and texture so every design will be machine and manufacturing friendly.
