- Drag & Drop Placement of over 1200 geometries (cut and size variations) from the Swarovski digital component catalogs, for NURBS (curves, polysurfaces, solids), subdivision surfaces and polygon meshes
- Real-time Updates, both in the software (rolling updates for active subscribers) and new Swarovski collections (e.g., seasonal launches)
- Prongs, both aesthetic as well as functional
- Pavé for curves and surfaces/mesh geometries, such as spray-on brushes as well as color and texture based circle packing modifiers
- Cavity Creation and geometry optimizations for product visualization, rapid prototyping, and metal production
- Cutter Builder primarily for gemstone settings, e.g., fine jewelry applications
- Cup Mesh structural creation to transform designs into production-ready, self-sustaining geometric structures with accurate cavity settings, inspired by and ideal for 3D printing
- Bill of Materials of utilized Swarovski components automatically compiled for export
