Technical Drawing with Illustrator

Technical Drawing For Jewelry Designers (1) Session

New to NYJDI is a 1-day Technical Drawing with Illustrator Workshop taught be Martinu Schneegass
This course will teach how to create a 2-D technical drawing using Adobe Illustrator to provide either a bench jewelry or manufacturer with the all the necessary information and specifics to produce the jewelry piece. A good analogy of a technical drawing would be that it is similar to a blueprint that an architect draws up to provide to the construction company. The more information provided on a technical drawing, the more likely the jewelry piece can be fabricated as the designer intended.

  • Show the details of settings and findings as it relates to your designs.
