Aloha, As some people are interested in Solid Works, let me also give
you some contacts. Neil George (also on this list) has had great
success using this program and an add on called, Jewelworks. He may
be contacted at, firstname.lastname@example.org or check out his
website, www.cymro-jewelworks.com. He is on the East Coast (Florida).
On the West Coast (California), contact Bob Patel at (213) 627-0071.
They both offer jewelry specific training and have expertise in Solid
Works. The main thing is getting into 3D and getting the software
that is right, for what you want to accomplish. For other software
solutions (3D design, CAD or CAM) or RP output devices (CNC Mills, 3D
printers, etc.), please feel free to contact me.
