A little over a year ago, I had an interview with the Jeweller Magazine about public perceptions of Jewellery CAD in the UK. I'm happy to say at long last I have permission to share that article with you.
Swarovski has recently developed a potentially exciting new series of plug-ins to help jewellers add Swarovski crystals (and other gem stones of all sorts) to their designs. One plug-in is for Rhino, the other is for Adobe Illustrator. They call it Ennoble.io.
Cinematography Database has recently performed a test run on Oculus Rift's own 3D content and production tool Oculus Medium. It gives a good overview of just what these virtual reality tools can already do. See for yourself.
A few weeks ago, I discovered a book called Designing Jewelry with Rhino by Eliania Rosetti being self-published out of Brazil. Since it’s become clear that more CAD jewellers need to know about this book, I’ve written a brief review here.
