is a professional jewelry design software which lets you create 3D models of jewelry and other luxury items easily, precisely and quickly.
It is suitable for both novice users as well as experienced CAD designers and features the most comprehensive range of jewelry-specific tools to help you through every stage of the design process.
Models created with RhinoJewel 6.0
can be used to generate outstanding photo-realistic renders and are characterized by absolute accuracy of dimensions, a feature which can be replicated in the real world by means of the best Rapid Prototyping solutions currently available.
adds to Rhino 3D
an extensive collection of jewelry-specific tools divided into four main groups: Metal Tools, Gem Tools, Bonus Modeling Tools and tools related to SWAROVSKI GEMS. As always, you also have at your disposal the complete range of classic Rhino Tools, many of which are also found as a Rhinojewel-Enhanced version which boosts and optimizes their application in jewelry.
If you select the option to install RhinoJewel 6.0
with the Rhinojewel Interface (instead of as a Plugin) then you will find all tools re-arranged according to how often they are used in the jewelry creation process and with the option to access all subtoolbars much more comfortably, without the need for so many mouse clicks. This interface option is also suited to designers who are used to the classic Rhino interface, who will find it very familiar.
Features described above are for the commercial version. Here are the limitations for the RhinoJewel Educational Student Version
Educational version limitations mainly regard the versatility of the options in Prong Setting Eternity Ring builder, Bezel Setting builder and Prong
Setting builder. The commercial version
offers the option to use 8+ different stone cuts, while the educational version is limited only to
round and square cut in bezel tools and one set of "prong number and position" options in Prong Setting Eternity Ring builder.
Another important limitation of the Educational version is the impossibility to use the important "Collision" feature in Insert Pave & Bead tool
which precludes the possibility to produce stone paves faster and easier.
