Iconery – A New Combination of CAD/CAM Manufacturing and Online Retail

6 October, 2015

Considering we’ve seen quite a few business models already which offer jewellery designers and CAD modellers a place to sell and promote their goods (including e-lancing, 3D model marketplaces, Jewellery CAD Competitions, and CAD-based jewellery e-commerce), I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone figured out a viable business model to take the idea of on-demand CAD-based jewellery manufacturing up-market.

Introducing Iconery.

Ivka Adam, Silicon Vally veteran who worked for eBay, Hulu, and Modnique, has developed Iconery as a way of seamlessly integrating both luxury e-commerce with CAD/CAM based fulfilment and support for its stable of independent designers. By providing a full range of services for their designers including CAD, 3D printing, casting, assembly and polishing, the idea is to give their curated designers more time to focus on their strengths while Iconery handles the rest.

The 3D Printing Industry blog has written a nice analysis of their business model:
