What is RhinoEmboss?

RhinoEmboss is a plugin for RhinoGold that allows you to create relief’s, engravings, sculpture and textures.

The software enables you to create 3D models from images such as black and white clip art, logos, etc for different industries such as: jewelry, gifts, awards and trophies, medallions, furniture, ADA signage, and more.

For the Jewelry industry it can be used for filigree work , signet rings, family crests, corporate logos, etc.

RhinoEmboss is bundled with RhinoGold 4.0 or can be purchased separately and it requires Rhino 5.0. If you are an existing RhinoGold 3.0 user, you can upgrade to RhinoGold 4.0 which includes licences for RhinoEmboss and Clayoo (valued at: 495 Euro each).

Features

  • Advanced tools to create relief’s from clip-art, logo’s, etc.
  • Advanced Profile and Brush Editor
  • Enables you to create raised or etched relief’s.
  • Over 70 brushes available, and ability to create more.
  • Speed up the creation of your designs using the Raster to Vector tool, this automatically extracts the outline curves from clip-art or scanned drawings rather than you having to create the curves manually.

RhinoGold 4.0 Review

RhinoGOLD is a jewelry specific Computer Aided Design (CAD) program which has been developed specifically to assist professional jewelers increase productivity, automate repetitive design tasks, and produce photo-realistic renderings and presentation scenes for clients or promotional material.

With the release of version 4.0, RhinoGold 3D CAD software for jewelry has matured, and finally has its own advantages over competitors like Matrix and JewelCAD.

Overall, this newest version makes RhinoGold the ideal solution for jewellery designers who want industry specific tools, running via a robust 3D engine (Rhino 3D) for as low a cost as possible. If you are a jeweler who has previously considered purchasing RhinoGold, you should do yourself a favour and have a look at the new RhinoGold 4.0.

rendering eternity ring 007RhinoGOLD is a jewelry specific Computer Aided Design (CAD) program which has been developed specifically to assist professional jewelers increase productivity, automate repetitive design tasks, and produce photo-realistic renderings and presentation scenes for clients or promotional material. With the release of version 4.0, RhinoGold 3D CAD software for jewelry has matured, and finally has its own advantages over competitors like Matrix and JewelCAD.

If you are a user of earlier versions of RhinoGold, you will immediately notice major speed improvements in the processing of many of the tools and functions in RhinoGold 4.0. For example the new “Light Gems” technology allows for the fast and responsive display of thousands of gems on a standard computer, in fact this video shows over  8,000 gemstones, rendered and displayed in real-time. The Ring Wizard has been completely redesigned, and is now more intuitive and faster than the previous version.

For high-end jewellery designs using pave, the new Azure Tool creates a honeycomb from paves. The new milgrain tool is a fast way to create millgrain finishes on your designs; perfect for 3D rendering and emailing to customers.

For Trade jewelers, RhinoGold Report is the perfect tool for managing your designs and creating project reports: Gem reports, metal reports, timings, workshop costs, etc. and all of this calculated automatically from your design.

Included with the new RhinoGold version 4.0 comes an entirely new subdivision modeller called Clayoo. This modelling tool is 100% fully integrated into RhinoGold, making the transition back and forth between this tool and Rhino’s NURBS workflow very easy. For jewelers looking to create organic jewelry designs, Clayoo is an excellent free addition to RhinoGold, as well as being competitive with T-Splines.

For stunning photo-realistic images RhinoGold has it’s own very easy to use high quality rendering studio called, RhinoGold Render Studio, and it has been designed to accommodate many 3rd-party rendering plug-ins for Rhino 3D (eg: Brazil, V-Ray, Flamingo, Maxwell and Hypershot). RhinoGold also integrates with all types of prototyping machines, for both CNC multi-axis routers (subtractive) and 3D Printer (additive) technologies.

I have been teaching 3D design to students since 2005 and one of the most common issues with beginners is their files are not water-tight and will not print. The “STL Wizard” automatically fixes STL files for printing via milling or on a 3D printer – this is a real lifesaver – – trust me 🙂

The automated suite of tools works better than ever, and RhinoGold now offers the capability of editing the functions after they have been completed. Combined with Rhino 5‘s new parametric editing capabilities, this makes the tools in RhinoGold more efficient than ever before.

So what exactly is Parametic Editing?

rhinogold_4_paramatic_editingIn the example on the right,  we used three commands: Gem Studio, Head (Claw) Studio and Dynamic Polar Array. We can dynamically adjust parameters; ie- the numbers of gemstones, size/shape of stones, head (claw) parameters, and the 3D model is automatically updated. Can you imagine the possibilities? You could create an eternity ring design, then if you change the size or shape of stones the ring model is automatically updated. The timesaving in this area alone is fantastic. Imagine how many combinations you could create in a matter of minutes?

RhinoGold is available in either 32bit and 64bit versions. 32-bit versions of Microsoft Windows can only allocate a maximum of 2 GB of memory to each running process, regardless how much RAM memory is available on your computer. A 64-bit system is not subject to the same memory limitation. A 64-bit processor has a theoretical maximum addressable memory size so large it is measured in multiple petabytes (1 petabyte = 1 million gigabytes). Basically more memory is available in the 64-bit version of RhinoGold meaning you can work will larger, and more complex designs.

So what CAD Software is better for Jewelry Design?

TSRubyOvalRing-frThe question jewellers always ask me is “Which is better, RhinoGold or Matrix?” Both programs use the Rhino 3D engine which is known world-wide for it’s robust and industrial stength. It’s interesting to note how different countries have favoured different programs. While Matrix is developed in the US, and RhinoGold developed in Spain, the US favours RhinoGold, whilst in Asia, JewelCAD still seems quite popular.

There is no question in my mind that RhinoGold offers a much simpler and uncluttered button bar and interface. In my opinion for jewellers who are inexperienced with CAD software, I think that RhinoGold’s interface makes it much easier to use.

While Matrix certainly boasts some more advanced tools in a few areas, The list of basic features they share is quite similar: Ring Builder, Setting Builders, Pave Tools, Gem Libraries, Gemstone Setting, Parametric History, Smart Flow, Profile Placer for Sweeps, and Drill Cutters.

“for jewellers who are inexperienced with CAD software, RhinoGold’s interface makes it much easier to use”

There are also a few specific features where RhinoGold’s tools end up being more flexible and even unique: Support Spru’s for milling machines, Braided Rope builder, Covert bitmap image to curves, Drag and Drop Materials, Text on a Curve, Surface Inset/Outset, Meshing for Rapid Prototyping.

Finally, the cost of Rhino 3D, RhinoGold 4.0, and a Rendering plug-in are still much less than Matrix.

Overall, this newest version makes RhinoGold the ideal solution for jewellery designers who want industry specific tools, running via a robust 3D engine (Rhino 3D) for as low a cost as possible. If you are a jeweler who has previously considered purchasing RhinoGold, you should do yourself a favour and have a look at the new RhinoGold 4.0.
