CrossGems: The Ultimate Tool for Complex Jewelry Models
April 25, 20232 min read
Design complex jewelry models with ease using CrossGems, a professional software that doesn't require any technical CAD knowledge. This software boasts an impressive array of features that make it one of the most versatile tools in the Rhino world.
One of the standout features of CrossGems is its real-time object linking, allowing you to delete or modify any of the 100+ tools or Boolean operations and keeping the parametric history intact. This feature also applies to Rhino gumballs, which means you can reset transformations or restore deleted document objects at any time, including SubD objects and Meshes, while maintaining compatibility with Rhino's Record History function.
For more advanced users, all the tools in Rhino are also available in Grasshopper, making CrossGems an incredibly versatile software.
CrossGems also includes a rendering material library with over 300 materials and grounds for the integrated physics-based render Cycles. Materials and grounds can be assigned with a single click, and CrossGems will automatically swap materials when changing display modes to achieve the best quality for every situation.
This software can be run with its own interface, simplifying the workflow, or as a Rhino plugin, allowing users to keep all the parametric features they're used to in the Rhino UI. The Command History Panel, available in both Rhino and CrossGems UI, is the visible part of this system that allows users to interact with and manage all the model components.CrossGems is capable of importing and converting gems from other software, such as RhinoGold and Matrix, as well as importing Panther files while maintaining 100% parametric history.
CrossBytes 3D, the creators of CrossGems, have a long-standing history in the jewelry software industry, developing RhinoGold for over ten years before being acquired by a multinational company. From there, they created Panther 3D, the world's first parametric jewelry software from Rhino and Grasshopper. CrossGems is the latest evolution of their software, boasting an impressive array of features that make it an essential tool for any jewelry designer.
