What you are wanting to do, is relatively easy to do, and
relatively cheap. Looks good but at that price I'll stick to my
pencil and paper
Like I said it was relatively cheap ;-)
You can pay more of course.
You have to look at it as a business investment, and compare the
price of the jewellers equipment you no longer need if you go fully
CAD. If you do that the cost is very reasonable.
Set up CAD, vs setting up a traditional jewellers bench. Then if you
want to expand, how much does it cost for another nine
benches/workstations? CAD is far cheaper to setup and maintain.
That's how businesses see it, just in dollars.
For myself, I like both methods, I was fortunate enough to have an
IT, and a manual skills background so I can appreciate both.
