3D Scanning

Commonly used software by architects, large-scale designers and jewellers.  However, as far as jewellery is concerned, it is more time consuming than using the Matrix plug-in for Rhino because it isn’t a specialist jewellery program.  The release of Rhino 5 at the end of 2012 has considerably improved the ease of use of the program e.g. Gumball allowing much easier resizing of pieces.

To use Matrix, you must have already purchased Rhino.  Matrix has simplified a lot of commands used in jewellery such as to set stones and has added a lot of builders such as eternity ring builders, speeding up the 3D creation process.  It is the most popular software on the market for 3D jewellery design.
