Software by me:
The Design Analysis Tool allows the most comprehensive and detailed comparisons of gem appearance and performance available. It is an important part of the kit in selecting the best angles to use in modern high-tech flat faceting designs. The DAT will be available soon…
Software I recommend:
GemCad for Windows has three main purposes: Proof-cutting a diagram; modifying a diagram; and creating new faceting diagrams. I design all of my flat-facet gems on Gemcad, and I use it for learning and reviewing sequencing of complex diagrams prior to cutting. I regard Gemcad as one of the most essential tools for any serious faceter – and as one of the most important contributions to modern faceting. Thank you, Robert Strickland.
