CAD/CAM Impact on Jewellery Fabrication

This paper looks at the impact computer technology, specifically CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacture), has had on jewelry fabrication during the 20th century. This is a topic not covered in the existing course outline, one that is controversial within the industry and one that has had a significant impact on how jewelry can be designed, produced and how it is perceived. In the broader picture CAD/CAM is being introduced across other artistic disciplines so the implications for a class can be seen in a broader context than jewelry alone.
