FULL RECORDING OF DESIGNING JEWELLERY WITH CAD IN MATRIX GEMVISION.
I’ve taken the time to record a two hour modeling session to share how I made this cocktail ring. The video is 16 x faster in speed so it is under 10 min. Estas Tonne has recorded the music.
I have tried to explain the different commands that have been used in doing this jewellery design. I guess one would have to have a bit of experience to understand the Rhino and Matrix commands and learn from it. But for those who are thinking of getting something made bespoke it may be nice to have a more in depth understanding of how the designs are made, everything from rings, earrings, bangles, pendants, bracelets and necklaces can be modeled in CAD.
CREATING A 3D-IMAGE RENDER
Using V-Ray which is a plugin for Matrix one can create a life like renderings of the 3D model. One has to chose what material to apply on different layers and can experiment a bit with lightning and backgrounds and environments to get the effect one is looking for. This is something that can end up wasting a lot of time if one doesn’t know exactly how one wants it to look. Having a clear idea of the jewellery design or bespoke item want to look like will save a lot of time because there is so much to chose from and it is quite fun to see it in different colors also.
