About the Training

Jewellery Cad Designing is a comprehensive 3-day class you’ll learn to create and edit accurate free-form 3-D NURBS models. This fast-moving class covers most of Rhino’s functionality, including some of the most advanced surfacing commands. We will touch on grasshopper for Rhino and RhinoGold.

Students will work on specific jewellery projects that show the preferred method of application of Rhino.

This course provides the solid fundamentals of the CAD tool Rhino and RhinoGold to prepare the student for more specific and advanced learning. Our job in this intensive course is to get you to THINK in Cad. We want to teach you how to learn Cad. So that when you are not in class you know where to find good learning tools to allow you to expand your learning from home. This is a fast paced class so some computer skills would be of great help as the volume of material we explore is only limited to the speed at which you learn and your general computer skills. So come prepared to learn.

Introduction to Grasshopper

Parametric Design using Grasshopper (Plugin for Rhino)

Introduction to RhinoGold

Building basic objects (Simple rings to halo rings) - Various lines and sweep commands

Students will work on specific jewellery projects that show the preferred method of application of Rhino.

Goals and objectives for students will be to learn;

  • what is CAD and how Rhino5 is the software most used as the motor that drives most jewellery design software

  • what is Grasshopper and how it can help speed up your cad design and make final designs more accurate, explore new geometry

  • what is RhinoGold plugin of Rhino5

  • how Rhino5, Grasshopper interact with RhinoGold

  • the workflow in the design process and how to effectively to design in Cad

  • to break down a jewellery design into it’s different elements and component parts, back to a point in space

  • jewellery design tolerances and production standards

  • first rule of computers which applies with Cad as will.. “Garbage in is Garbage out”

  • that CAD is as simple as the oldest tool in time…..

  • how to navigate the Rhino, Grasshopper, and RhinoGold work spaces

  • to create and edit accurate free-form 3-D NURBS models in Rhino

  • to create Lines, Circles, Arcs, and Curves

  • to create 3D models from 2D objects

  • to use copy, move, array, rotate, trim, split, scale, and join commands

  • to use important commands, sweep1, swwep2, loft, editpt on, editpt off

  • how Record History works and interacts with grasshopper

  • how to group objects, work in layers and more

  • to use all the different Boolean operations

  • how each of RhinoGold jewellery tools work and can make jewellery designing easy

  • Design 2 to 3 items of jewellery to completion ready for 3D printing, the hard way, point, curve, surface, solid surface, mesh

  • how to make their models a mesh ready for 3d printing

  • mesh tools and checking, fixing a mesh

  • use 3Dcoat software to fix models that would take hours to remake for final Boolean operations to work

  • a little bit about different 3D printers

  • general CAD, mesh, 3D printing problem solving, with different tip and tricks
