Witness rock-star CAD/CAM artists show off their technical skills and creative flair, right on the show floor. Hosts Joel McFadden and Kyle Bullock will keep you on the edge of your seat as they report the progress of each challenger.

Enjoy a front row view for all the drama of the design process while the action is played out live on large screen monitors. A panel of expert judges will determine a winner based on the creativity demonstrated in the use of CAD technology as well as the practical knowledge needed to produce the finished piece. Design, craftsmanship, originality, and how well it meets the request of the customer and or designer will be considered.  Designs are to be rendered for 3D printing.

Audience participation on site and via live-streaming of the event using the Atlanta Jewelry Show Facebook page, will allow for voting to select the winner of The People’s Choice Award.

Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the second challenge.
