Overview

The fundamental philosophy of Rhinojewel is to enhance, optimize and integrate - into a single intuitive workspace - the best and the latest technologies which have an application for the design and the manufacturing of jewelry. Rhinojewel tools help with those tasks of the jewelry modeling process which may be complex or repetitive, while always providing the flexibility required for maximum creative freedom. Rhinojewel facilitates, speeds up and opens new frontiers in the art of creating jewelry.

Rhinojewel adds to Rhinoceros 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 optimises their application in jewelry.

If you select the option to install Rhinojewel 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.

Read below to find out more about each group of Rhinojewel tools and how they can assist you in modeling your best jewelry.

Rhinojewel Bonus Modeling Tools

 
The Rhinojewel Bonus Modeling Tools group features a range of simple tools that are a modified version of some classic Rhino tools, enhanced to boost their performance and optimise their use for the creation of jewelry. For example, imagine you have done a pavè with 100 or more micro-prongs which you now want to make taller by scaling them perpendicularly to the surface: this operation would be very slow in Rhinoceros but can be carried out in seconds with Rhinojewel. Likewise, the rest of the tools in this group will open up a world of easier and faster jewelry modeling.

Classic Rhino Tools

 
Rhinojewel is built around Rhinoceros, a 3D Modeling Software known all around the world for its flexibility, precision, ease of use and affordable price.
While Rhinojewel adds many trade-specific tools which are essential for modeling high quality jewelry, Rhino also has many tools which are just perfect for the design process. When you use Rhinojewel you also have at your disposal all the classic Rhino tools. We recommend that you install the Rhinojewel Interface to find the classic Rhino Tools re-arranged according to how often they are used in jewelry. In addition, the Rhinojewel Interface allows you to access all Subtoolbars without the need for any clicks, making the modeling process faster and even more productive.
Rhinojewel is committed to sharing with you information of how to best use the classic Rhino tools for the creation of jewelry and how to use them in conjunction with the many Rhinojewel tools to achieve the highest results possible.
