eLUXE3D, A Pioneer In Jewelry Scanning, Releases a New Product
Sponsored by eLUXE3D
With more than 23 years in the sector and a track record for innovation over the last half decade, the Rochester Hills, Michigan-based firm is introducing the Platinum jewelry scanner, taking the next step in a growing but underserved sector.
Founder and CEO Srdjan Urosev has worked closely with both jewelry designers and manufacturers to identify and address pain points in the design process and improve on current technologies.
The result of this work is the Platinum jewelry scanner, a product that combines accuracy and ease-of-use with affordability.
eLUXE3D’s Platinum scanner allows the user to integrate physical objects into the digital world, opening up a world of possibilities when it comes to jewelry design. The scanner also works with a high level of efficiency, allowing the user to save both time and money.
For instance, eLUXE3D has developed a tool that has dramatically reduced the time it takes to design a perfect-fit wedding band or shadow band. With the Platinum scanner, a wedding ring can be scanned in just 10 minutes, giving designers a perfect model that can be used within a CAD System.
The scanners from eLUXE3D have made some of the biggest problems in jewelry design obsolete. Irregular stones, a once time-consuming hurdle for designers, can be easily and accurately scanned, giving the designer a perfect digital representation that can be used for any custom jewelry design.
The Platinum scanner also gives jewelers a unique option for jewelry repair. If a customer has lost an earring, a scan can be made of the one the customer still has, allowing for a perfect match.
In fact, customers could have their entire jewelry collection scanned, creating a digital library for historic physical models.
The eLUXE3D technology is perfect for creating new and different pieces, putting a spin on family heirlooms. Heirloom pieces could be scanned and replicated using different materials or even making more than one, yet still ensuring the original stays safe.
