Ever Wanted to Learn CAD for Jewelry Design?
Now you can with RhinoGold 6.5 / 6.6 Fundamentals Video Training on-line.
But I'm not Technical. Will this training work for me?
Absolutely! You don’t need to be a technical expert to follow along with our training videos. Everything is broken down into step-by-step modules making what we teach very easy to follow - regardless of your age or technical know-how. You are guided with keyboard popups in each video lesson. It really is that simple! Provided you have basic computer skills, you can make this training work.
I have a full-time job. I don't have much spare time!
Don’t worry, most of our students work full-time. Our training videos are 100% web video based. Plus they are easy to follow and you can stop, rewind and replay the videos as often as you need to. Today, it doesn't matter where in the world you are, you can educate yourself online, any-time, as needed.
I'm traditonal, I don't like technology & prefer to hand make.
You still can, a cast ring still needs to be cleaned up, set, and polished. Let's face it, you wouldn't be using a motorised hand-piece, torch, or ultra-sonic cleaner if it wasn't for technology. Also having experience as a bench jeweler is a definite asset when learning CAD.
Do I need to buy any software to do your training?
No. You can download trial versions of RhinoGold 6.6 and Rhino 6. The trial editions are good for a few days, but you can email to extend your trial so you'll have enough time to go through our training. Of course if you already own RhinoGold, then you don't need anything else to get started.
Does it run on a Mac?
Whilst there is a MAC version of Rhino, it does not yet support any plugin's such as RhinoGold. RhinoGold is Windows-based, so can run on Mac's via Apple's free "bootcamp" software. It requires a copy of Windows 7, 8 or 10, and installs Windows in a partition on your hard drive. We know many MAC users using boot camp to run both MS-Windows and MAC OS on their notebooks without a problem. We recommend you check that your computer can run "boot camp", if so, you can purchase Windows & install the Rhino /RhinoGold trial.
Will you add any new lessons?
Yes. We will regularly be adding new video training lessons, and of course we welcome any lesson suggestions from customers.

Over the last 15-years, I have seen the speed at which CAD has become accepted by jewellers, both from a manufacturing aspect and from a customer and sales perspective.
From a bench jeweller's perspective, CAD introduces greater precision for stone setting, it speeds-up setting time by cutting seats & pre-notching prongs, and it offers many other benefits of dimensionally accurate 3D printed jewellery.
As a jewellery designer, you should use all of the mediums available to enable your customer to visualise a piece of jewellery. If your customer can not visualise your design, then they will probably not buy from you. It's that simple!
I think it's now mandatory to supply several renderings if your design, so that your customer can gain trust and confidence in you as a jeweller. If someone comes to you with an idea for an ring, you can design it in CAD and e-mail some rendered images of how the piece will look.
These renderings do not necessarily need to be photo-realistic images, but they need to convey the "feeling" or "emotion" of your design. This is a great way to create a "point-of-difference", and to keep the sales conversation and relationship going after the customer has left your shop.
At the end of the day if they decide not to purchase your design, you can add it to your online collection, that way your design time and the renderings can be used for future sales.
Another benefit is that customer quotations can be quickly prepared from the gem and metal infomation contained in the 3D design (eg: quantity/size of gems and metal weight). RhinoGold can accurately tell you how much your design will weigh in a variety of precious metals.
Here's a sample of what we cover in our lessons:
When you go through each of the lessons and tutorials in our RhinoGold Fundamentals on-line video training you will not only learn how to make all the designs below, but you'll also learn:
- How to export your files for 3D printing or milling
- Tips to getting Boolean Functions to work every time
- How to calculate gem & metal weights

Look at What Other People Had to Say...
I just wanted to shoot you an email and thank you for the course it was great, I felt you explained things really well. Your years of teaching experience showed.Rick From Brisbane
That channel set ring tutorial that you sent me details for, is as far as I'm concerned, by miles the most useful demonstration I've seen. I have found the things you have sent to be the most easily understood. I know my teenage kids would pick this up in a flash, but my 50 year old brain needs all the help it can get!!!Terry From Perth
Taking to this like a duck to water...used the software for about 20 pieces so far...it has paid for itself and more already. Thanks again.
David From Queensland
...learning with you is a very enjoyable experience. The way you lead the exercises is clear, continuous, your voice clear and calm. Thank-you for giving me the possibility to learn.Ruth From Florida, USA
Thank-you guys so much for this great thing you put up here I am so happy to have found you and very excited to finally learn RhinoGold.Erika Switzerland
Just sending you a big thank you for the weekends classes. It was everything I was hoping for and more. Thank you again.Tim From Melbourne
I think all those years at the bench help me a lot with the designs, however you still need to be able to do it on the computer, I never thought I would be this advanced in the short period of time that I have been doing it…I have a great teacher and you have helped me to where I am at now.Andrew From Sydney
Thanks for the great training on the weekend. Also I would like to purchase the rhino 5 version if possible. Thanks so much.
Trudie From Melbourne
I purchased your course recently - and am loving it !! Thank-you for doing this.Rene From Colorado, USA
I learned so much from your course I have already recommended it to my jeweler friends . Before taking your class I was lost. I had little to no experience with computers and none with CAD. I was trying to teach myself I found lots of material on-line but nothing made sense. I came across a you-tube video from your school that finally explained RhinoGold in a way I could understand. I singed up the next day. Thank-you again.Michele From New York, USA
