“Coming from a jewellery background and having worked at the bench, I understand how overwhelming it can be to enter the world of CAD. I established Sierra Consultancy to fill the training niche in the UK and Ireland.”
Services We Provide
We offer group training and one-on-one support to beginners, developing CAD/CAM users, and advanced practitioners who want to continually enhance their skills. Our CAD consultancy services are tailored to your individual or business needs, ensuring the outcomes you need in an efficient and time-sensitive manner.

Our Software Solutions
Our experience working with the 3Design and Gravotech range of CAD and model-making software means we’re uniquely equipped to provide support and training. Our aim is to familiarise jewellers with this easy-to-use software to help them achieve their design goals.
We are an Official Reseller and Support Service provider for 3Design and 3Shaper. We also have expertise in TypeEdit and LaserType CAD/CAM software for your engraving needs.
We host remote and in-person events throughout the year, including a range of paid and free options to suit your schedule and budget. Some of our courses relate specifically to our software expertise, such as 3Design Taster Days to give attendees practical experience designing a ring with expert guidance.
If you have no formal training in jewellery CAD, our software-led courses can get you up to speed and maximise your return on investment. We work alongside educational partners in Glasgow, London, Wales and India to support your learning journey.
