About CAM

The Cone Angle Method (CAM) is a way to cut a girdle outline following a cone with the prescribed angles. The girdle outline could be any shape; round, trillion, square rectangle, pear or even irregular shape. When you cut the cone, the most important thing is you make every cone facet evenly come together to the center point. After you cut the cone, you chain-cut the girdle at 90 degrees meaning linking one girdle facet to the next.
