Hi! I am a jewelry student, and I will like to learn how to
create jewelry with CAD. Do you any school that specializes in
that? Please let me know!

Thanks for the help! Joy

Hello Joy. I don’t know where you are located, but Temple
University, Tyler School of Art in Elkins Park, PA (Philadelphia
suburb) has an excellent CAD/CAM program taught by Stanley
Lechtzin. Call the school at 215/782-2700 for more

Hi Joy, Take a look at www.doctorjewelcad.com, he has created
all of the gallery using Jewelcad. We will have classes soon on
the use of Jewelcad and the ModelMaker. You can learn this new
technology in less than one week. The best part, you don’t need
to know how to use a computer. You need to learn how to use the
tools and the rest, the creativity, will come
naturally.

The graduate metals department at Tyler School of Art, in
Philadelphia. The undergraduate program there is a very strong
traditional program of metalsmithing/jewelry techniques as has
been traditionally taught in U.S. art schools. But the graduate
students in that department concentrate almost exclusively on
CAD/CAM/rapid prototyping technologies, under the direction of
prof. Stanley Lechtzin. check out their web site for more info,
at: http://blue.temple.edu/~crafts/mjcc/mjcc.html Note that this
is a formal two (or more) year academic program of study leading
to a master of fine arts degree. It’s not offered as a quick
trade-level training course.
