This comprehensive 3-day jewellery CAD training course is intended for those who currently work professionally, or who wish to work professionally, in fine jewellery design and manufacturing, but who are new or nearly new to Rhino NURBS modelling software.
While this course contains most of the same concepts as the Rhino Level 1 class, the emphasis in this course has been reoriented towards working within a jewellery design and manufacturing context, so the exercises and emphasis on choice of tools and problem-solving strategies have been adjusted accordingly.
All trainees receive an Official Certificate on completion and all courses are delivered by the most experienced Rhino trainers in the UK.
The course starts with an introduction to the Rhino interface before moving on to the fundamentals of 2D curve construction and their use in creating cross sections for solid modelling.
We then introduce the key tools of solid creation in Rhino one by one in the context of common jewellery forms—solitaire rings, eternity rings, bezel settings, claw settings, rubover settings, rex settings, pearl settings, and pinched shanks.
Throughout these exercises, we will discuss important tolerance considerations for 3D printing models to use in precious metals casting.
We will also discuss creating STL files for rapid prototyping (such as 3D printing). Various presentation and rendering processes will also be considered.

This class takes place over 3 consecutive Fridays. The next 3-day classes commence in 2020, the dates are as follows and booking is available now:
