ADVANCED MAPPING OF THE ROUGH DIAMOND SURFACE
Rough diamonds have a complex surface texture, with multiple grooves and features. The first stage in automated rough planning is 3D modeling of the rough stone, which captures its unique surface. In 2001, Sarine Technologies led a revolution in rough planning, with the development of the world’s first laser mapping and modeling technology for rough diamonds, called DiaExpert®.
THE DIAMOND JOURNEY BEGINS HERE
DiaExpert scans all types of rough diamonds and utilizes a cutting edge scanner to map concave areas on the rough diamond, including grooves, to provide a detailed 3D model of the stone’s outer surface. While the Sarine Galaxy inclusion scanning system maps the internal inclusions, hidden inside the rough diamond, DiaExpert maps the surface flaws and features, enabling the diamond planner to accurately plan polished diamonds according to the unique surface texture of the rough. Together with the Galaxy system, the DiaExpert plays a key role in creating the story of the diamond journey, from rough to polished.
