The Sanders ModelMaker is the printer from your CAD workstation.
Whether you’re using the Model Master or the ModelMaker, both
reduces cost and dependence on hand carved models.
CAD enables quick response to customer changes before carving
wax or casting precious metal.
CAD allows the exploration of multiple custom design variations
without carving wax.

The biggest challenge in this industry is whether we can
convince the jewelry designer that CAD/CAM can vastly improve
their design and manufacturing process. Teaching a trained hand
craftsman to drop their wax carving tools and pick up a computer
mouse is the greatest challenge of all.
With CAD/CAM, models that are difficult or impossible to carve
by hand are easy to create with CAD/CAM. With CAD/CAM jewelers
are able to create precise symmetry, invisible settings, pave
settings, in addition to design feature reuse, design
visualization and sharing.
The two technologies ModelMaker and ModelMaster (CNC) are not
viable alternatives. It depends what you want to do. CNC cannot
perform difficult undercuts and hollow shapes required to lighten
and reduce the amount of precious metal in jewelry. The Sanders
ModelMaker doesn’t care what you design, it builds anything.
Something everyone seems to missing, The Sanders ModelMaker
doesn’t require a skilled technician to run. We’re not creating
tool paths, the software takes a design and builds it. We’ve
stated that this machine costs approx $1500 per month and pays
for itself between 5 months and 2 years, depending on your use.
In any case if you were doing 3 models per day, you would have
saved nearly $1 million in the five years you were paying off the
We’re selling this machine because it is doing the job.
Companies are buying 2 and 3 of them.
