Jewellery CAD Software – Rhino For Jewellery

Rhino For Jewellery Design and Rapid Prototyping

Rhino 3D CAD for Jewellery Design

Originally developed as a response to AutoCAD’s limitations with smooth 3D modelling, Rhino 3D is a general product design CAD tool which has been adopted by many different design specialities such as furniture, footwear, and jewellery. Its product design roots give it a great deal of flexibility, and also make it ideal for designing complex assemblies.

While Rhino is all that is needed to design models for rapid prototyping, each design speciality has added extensions (or plug-ins) for Rhino to make their jobs easier. Some examples include rendering tools (such as V-Ray or Maxwell), additional methods of working (T-Splines), and Jewellery plug-ins (such as RhinoGold or RhinoJewel). For Holts Academy of Jewellery’s Rhino for Jewellery Design course, we teach students as if they only have Rhino without any plug-ins.

Holts Academy offers private tuition courses in Rhino for beginner and intermediate users, specifically focused on Jewellery Design. They also offer a separate dedicated short courses for both T-Splines, and V-Ray for Jewellery Rendering.
