How do I make a Knife Edge Band in RhinoGold?

How do I make a Knife Edge Band in RhinoGold?

 

A number of customers have asked this question, so we have put together a short video below which explains how. The video is under 8:30 minutes long, and shows how you can create a custom ring profile, then add it to your library of shapes for use with the RhinoGold Ring Wizard. The great thing with the Ring Wizard is that you can use different ring profiles or your ring, so we show you how you can use a half-round profile at the bottom, and a knife-edge for the top of the ring band. It’s easy.

The latest version of RhinoGold gives you several ways to control the quantity of gemstones in you ring channel. The default is that the software automatically calculates the number of gems based on the gem size and position in the channel, however you can manually increase or decrease the quantity of stones.

The short video below shows you how:

Question: Why is my channel flipped on it’s side?

The functionality of the RhinoGold channel tool has changed since we recorded some of our training videos.

We suggested a change/improvement to the way the channel tool works, which has now been implemented in the current release of RhinoGold 4.0. The screen shots below show you what to do.

The last field in the channel tool allows you to set the “rotation” of the channel, so if you rotate it by 90 (ie: 90 degree) it will flip the right way up.

This tool is now very powerful as it can be used to create “halo” ring settings as you will see in the last image below.
