Gemvision Matrix and MatrixGold Essentials
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.
MatrixGold Essentials is Gemvision/Stuller’s latest creation. It is a full redesign of RhinoGold (which they bought out several years ago), made to emphasize a new leap in user friendliness. It’s a simpler interface than Matrix in many ways, designed to be a “lighter” and faster version of the full Matrix software with some of the more advanced functions removed.
