I devise methods to capture the surfaces of existing objects (in or out of context) for inclusion in jewellery. By 3-axis 3D scanning and by the addition of rotary capability 4-axis 3D scanning, even of objects with undercuts, hidden areas, through-holes and shadows; scaling up or down, editing and combining; I apply and enhance inexpensive benchtop machinery for producing rings, animals, souvenirs, sculptures that draw on designs I have 3D-captured, 3D-CAD created or 3D-library stored. Drawing on existing "subtractive rapid prototyping" equipment, new machinery and techniques, even satellite photo analysis methods, I link all the phases through standard software, empowering jewel artisans affordably to blend centuries-old knowledge with 21st century processes. I present by video-movie, pictorial, tactile example object, real-time scan process, real-time milling process and hands-on example.; http://www.fourth-axis.com
