    Which CNC machine and software for making jewellery?

    Hello, I'm new to CNC milling and I would like to purchase a CNC machine for jewellery production. I'm interested in 4 axis machine. Budget up to 2000 euro approximately. Which one would you recommend for making wax models (which later would be used in gold and silver casting machine)? Where can I buy this machine (Europe)?
    Also I would like to know which software is best for designing jewellery?

    That's about enough money for a Sherline CNC mill, which comes, optionally, with a 4th axis attachment. Shipment from the US might push it over your budget, though.

    As for the software, it really depends on what sort of jewelry you're designing, and what features you need to make your models effectively.

    I work at the university at the international student support center, and someone suggested organizing a jewelry making class, just a few sessions.

    By the way, at our international student support center, we organize different workshops for international students. We noticed that those workshops help them to improve their communication skills and feel more welcome in our country. They find new friends, discover new hobbies, and feel less homesick. As I mentioned before, someone suggested organizing a jewelry making class, just a few sessions. I have no idea if it is even possible. Do we need to buy or rent any machines or equipment for that? Is it possible to do something like this for a group of 10-15 people? We want to make something like this https://www.chvker.com/collections/butterfly-jewelry Is it possible for beginners, or we need to look for something more simple?

    Knowing suitable metal is essential for you to understand how to engrave metal. Fiber lasers are most suitable for marking all types of brass, copper, aluminum, stainless steel and nickel-plated metals, as well as engineering plastics such as polycarbonate. Aluminum is one of the best and most common metals used in metal engraving machines, and brass and copper are also ideal because both copper and brass have good heat transfer capabilities. Tungsten and cemented carbide are the hardest metals on earth, so engraving or etching is generally not recommended. Here are some metals that you can engrave with a high-efficiency fiber laser engraving machine.
    Stainless Steel
    Aluminum
    Anodized aluminum
    Hardened metals
    Alloyed steels
    High-speed steels
    Titanium, titanium alloys
    Brass
    Copper
    Precious metals (e.g. silver, gold)
    Coated metals
