Freedom to Design

Rhino is one of the best tools to explore and develop a wide range of designs. The general modeling tools allow for a highly flexible way to bring designs into 3D.

  • Model using accurate NURBS geometry.
  • Visualize changes in realtime.
  • Measure mass properties.
  • Training materials, videos, and support are available.

Rendering by Askar N

Use renderings to sell your work without the expense of building each piece. Rhino is a great tool to visualize designs from illustrations to photorealistic renderings. To help, Rhino supports many popular rendering plugins.

  • Advanced display for realtime rendering.
  • Multiple illustrative display modes.
  • Ability to make images 2D for illustrated graphics.
  • Multiple view layouts.
  • Work with popular graphics products for output.

Dynamic Tools

by Panter3D

Rhino is one of the best tools to explore and develop a wide range of solutions. Go far beyond what has been previously possible to design or fabricate with the additional information Grasshopper can generate.

  • Use Grasshopper to create parametric systems to explore the design solution.
  • Explore organic repetition with local variation possible.
  • Integrate intelligent data sets within the design process.
  • Use form optimization and organizational topologies with analytics.

Generative jewelry in Grasshopper…

Peacock for Grasshopper is a free-culture project for developing algorithmic jewelry modeling in the Grasshopper/Rhinoceros 3D environment. Create parametric jewels, generative collections, automated productions, customized tools, optimize costs, and explore new aesthetics and advanced solutions for jewelry design.

Digital Manufacturing

Rhino can be tightly integrated in any step of the manufacturing process. Whether ordering raw casting or using digital fabrication methods and 3D printing, Rhino models can be used to create accurate, symmetrical, detailed models for casting.

  • Output accurate geometry for fabrication.
  • Export accurate 2D drawings and stunning renderings.
  • Export accurate 3D STL files for 3D printing on the jewelry industry’s most popular 3D printers: EnvisionTec, Asiga, 3D Systems, Solus, SolidScape.
  • Prepare files for CNC cutting directly within Rhino using CNC plugins such as RhinoCAM or JewelryCAM.
  • Drive advanced robots for custom automated fabrication.
