Gemvision Matrix is is a jewellery-specific CAD suite based upon Rhino CAD software’s same core engine, but rebuilt from the ground up to make it as easy and efficient as possible for fine jewellers.
In addition to offering all the advantages of Rhino, Matrix has a whole series of additional builders and special tools for making all the repetitive and painstaking tasks of jewellery design (such as pave and prong settings) fast and easy. Thanks to all these additional tools, Matrix will get you designing for production amazingly quickly.
The British Academy of Jewellery offers four different courses in Matrix: a Level 3 CAD Diploma, a Level 4 CAD Diploma, and shorter Level 3 CAD Certificates and Level 4 CAD Certificates. In addition, private tuition is also available. The intermediate courses include training in T-Splines.
They also offer a separate dedicated private CAD tuition in V-Ray for Jewellery Rendering.
