Gemvision Releases Newest Software Model

GemVision Martix 8.0 new releaseJewelry design and manufacturing software company Gemvision has released an updated version of its computer-aided design technology, Matrix Version 8.

The latest software upgrade improves upon its predecessor in designing, pricing, ordering, selling, and manufacturing functions. These include mesh repair and computer-assisted manufacturing tools for swift model production, and the integration of Stuller’s gem ordering and processing tools based on the day’s precious metal prices and gemstone availability. Users can also browse through finished libraries of bridal and fashion designs, along with jewelry findings for easy access to advanced designs.

“When Matrix was initially developed, it was our job to educate jewelers on the advantages of CAD,” Doug Kerns, manager of sales at Gemvision, said in a press release. “As CAD becomes the new normal, Gemvision remains focused on the distant horizon, developing the most cutting-edge tools and services to the jewelry industry. The latest update, Matrix 8, is a great example.” 

For users who require additional help, the new Gemvision Online Academy also provides instruction for using the software.

SRK Establishes Medical Center for Patients in Need

India’s leading diamond manufacturing company Shree Ramkrishna Exports (SRK) is at the helm of a new medical center that caters to underprivileged patients in the western Indian state of Gujarat. 

The Santokba Medical Centre in Lathi Village is an initiative by SRK chairman Govind Dholakia to bring low-cost medical care to people in poverty at a state-of-the-art facility. The center’s high-quality technology, equipment, and treatment protocols were all put in place by consultation and collaboration with specialists. Patients will pay for treatment at a subsidized rate, which will go toward the center’s expenses. The rest will be covered by Matrushri Santokba Laljibhai Dholakia Charitable Trust. 

Dholakia has also allocated a special fund for supporting girls’ education and helping widows and other women in need.
