The kit also includes copper electroforming solution, brightener solution, graphite conductive paint, water-based varnish, paintbrushes, copper conductive wire, wood handling sticks, rubber gloves, a plastic beaker, copper coil anode, funnel, and a coffee filter for electroforming, as well as a stainless steel pan, copper sulfate, copper sheet, aluminum electrodes, spacers, and sandpaper for etching.

The latest version of Matrix 3-D CAD software offers a number of new features designed to make jewelers more creative and productive. Among the latest additions are Smart Pattern, a tool that uses simple flat patterns to create complex 3-Ddesigns; Clayoo 2.5, an organix modeling suite that allows users to design in a method similar to carving and shaping wax; and an updated Texture Builder that lets users use a grayscale image to control and apply creative surfaces and finishes to their designs. Also included with the software is manufacturing integration with Stuller, which allows users to submit their CAD designs directly to Stuller for printing and casting.
