Custom Design Technology

Our industry is evolving, and nothing is driving that evolution as significantly as new computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM). CounterSketch is the leading CAD software on the market today, offering a robust yet intuitive interface and a library of convenient prototypes. Designs are built to order here at Stuller.

Projet 1200 Printer

ProJet® 1200

An affordable 3D Printer that quickly prints intricate casting patterns, stunning samples, and finished pieces.

With simple push button operation, the ProJet® 1200 3D printer puts the high precision and meticulous detail of a professional 3D printer on your bench. It prints most jewelry pieces in under two hours and materials cost less than $1 per piece. New tools in CounterSketch® Studio Version 5 and Matrix 8 software allow for easy export of your designs to the ProJet® 1200.

This product can be purchased through the Gemvision Store.


Working alongside customers in your shop, you select a photorealistic digital prototype from a large library of available styles.

CounterSketch Example


Starting with this 3D model, you collaborate with your customer to experiment with and enhance the prototype, altering its composition, modifying its shape, or trying different types of precious stone. As these changes materialize onscreen, the software generates updated estimates.


Using tools within the software, you pick finishing and setting options and transmit the design to Stuller for manufacturing. A typical job, once approved, takes less than two weeks to complete.
