Providing high quality CAD/CAM service to the jewelry industry



Brian Johnson

Welcome to BSJ Designs!  I am Brian Johnson, sole owner and operator of BSJ Designs.  I have over 25 years of experience as a goldsmith and custom designer.  I also have over 10 years of CAD/CAM design and operating experience.  This combination makes BSJ Designs the ideal choice for your CAD/CAM needs.  Utilizing the latest Gemvision Matrix software and an Asiga PICO 2 3D printer, your designs not only come to life, but are created in the highest accuracy.

Located in Columbus, OH, where the cost of living and the cost of doing business are both low, we are able to pass those savings along to you.  Additionally, being centrally located in the Mid-West, our Fed-Ex shipping rates are on average lower as well.                                         Brian Johnson


Services & Pricing

  • CAD (Computer-Aided Design) service:

    Whether your design idea is a simple doodle on a napkin, or a skillfully executed drafting, BSJ Designs can help you make it a reality. Using the latest Gemvision Matrix software, your design will be created. Then, photo realistic renderings will be generated and emailed to you for approval. The average time to get images is about one week. Of course this time can vary depending on the complexity of the design. All designs are considered the copyrighted material of the person or company that contacted BSJ Designs for services. They are only available for reproduction by that person or company.

    CAD design pricing:

    Simple designs: $30 to $60 (applies to most bands)
    Medium difficulty designs: $60 to $120 (applies to most eng rings)
    Complex and organic designs: $120+

  • CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) service:

    Have you already created the CAD file yourself, and just need it grown? No problem! At BSJ Designs, any CAD file can be imported into Matrix for 3D printing on our Asiga Pico2 printer. Your model/design will be analyzed, checked, and, if necessary, suggestions will be made to ensure your model/design will grow properly. Whether you created the file, or we did, pricing for growing most models is as follows:

    1 or more models that only take up 1/2 the build platform: $60

    1 or more models that take up the whole build platform: $120

    Before 3D Printing begins, you will be emailed a quote for approval. If BSJ Designs created the CAD file for you, and the design changed significantly since the original quote, this portion of the quote may be different than originally given.

  • Payment and Shipping:

    CAD: Before the images are emailed, a credit card must be placed on file. After the images are sent to you for approval, you have 2 weeks to notify us of any changes you would like made, or to inform us to proceed with growing. If we do not hear from you in 2 weeks, we will send you an email notifying you that your card will be charged. If we do receive a proceed to print from you, the CAD, growing, and shipping charges will all be charged at once, when the wax is shipped.

    Milling: Whether we are printing your file, or a file we generated, charges must be paid in full before shipment of your resin model.

    Shipping: At the time we quote your job, shipping charges will also be quoted. You will only be charged what we are charged for Fed-Ex shipping service.
