TCT Article – Reverse Engineering the Perfect Proposal

7 August, 2015

In all the years I’ve been writing this blog, I haven’t come across very many good case studies involving using 3D scanning to assist in jewellery making. It seems like such a sensible way of going about working alongside antique jewellery, but limitations in technology (as we’ve discussed here previously) continue to prove an obstacle.

All this makes this latest article from TCT Magazine a happy surprise. It seems one of the engineers at 3D Scanning company Physical Digital found a way to make 3D scanning work for him to help reverse engineer his fiancee’s grandmother’s ring to use as the basis of designing something of his own.

See for yourself. It’s an interesting story.
