This course is intended for those who currently work professionally, or who wish to work professionally, in fine jewellery design, but who are relatively new to Rhino NURBS modelling software in a jewellery design context, all taught at our Certified Rhino training centre in London.
Course Tutor - Jack Meyer
Jack Meyer has been providing jewellery CAD training in London's jewellery district Hatton Garden since 2006. Over 800+ students have passed through his classes over the years. His combined background in computer graphics programming as well as jewellery manufacturing is unusual among jewellery CAD instructors. He is also one of the few jewellery CAD instructors in the world who is certified to provide training in all major jewellery CAD software packages. When not writing or delivering courses, he runs a bespoke jewellery design business and moderates a jewellery technology trends blog, where he uses his combined knowledge of all types of jewellery CAD to provide advisory to those keen on starting out in jewellery CAD.
This comprehensive three-day class starts with an introduction to the Rhino interface before moving on to the fundamentals of 2D curve construction and their use in creating cross sections for solid modelling. We then introduce the key tools of solid creation in Rhino one by one in the context of common jewellery forms—solitaire rings, eternity rings, bezel settings, claw settings, rubover settings, rex settings, pearl settings, and pinched shanks. Throughout these exercises, we will discuss important tolerance considerations for 3D printing models to use in precious metals casting. We will also discuss creating STL files for rapid prototyping (such as 3D printing). Various presentation and rendering processes will also be considered.
Please Note - All Classes and Workshops are Half Price for Students
This class runs on Friday's from 09:30 to 17:30 with breaks and catered lunches.
Who should attend?
The workshop is open to all 3D content creators: architects, designers, engineers, artists and makers. The workshop will enable participants to create their own AR apps for modelling, sharing and building their ideas. Some experience with Rhino and Grasshopper is preferred but not required.
If you're new to Grasshopper then why not sign-up for the Simply Rhino Grasshopper Level 1 3-day training class on 11th, 12th & 13th February 2019. Details here.
Participant involvement and learning goals
Participants will be introduced to augmented reality environments and event-based parametric modelling within Grasshopper. Participants will design and build augmented reality applications for HoloLens and Mobile and gain confidence in developing applications for a diverse set of use cases within the architecture, design and construction industries. Participants will gain an understanding of the opportunities and constraints of current generation hardware to assist with complex fabrication tasks through the assembly of a large scale light weight structure. All participants will work directly with Microsoft Hololens headsets and AR enabled mobile phones throughout all phases of the workshop.
All participants will require a windows 10 laptop with up to date Rhinoceros 5/6 + Grasshopper
An AR enabled mobile phone is preferable but not essential.
Workshop leaders will provide all HoloLens headsets required for the workshop.

The basic-level workshop will introduce essential programming concepts using the C# language and the RhinoCommon API (programming library).
C# provides high-performance interaction within the Rhino/Grasshopper modeling environment. This lets you extend the capabilities of Rhino/Grasshopper, from automating repetitive tasks, developing customized workflows, to implementing advanced generative design algorithm, and interacting with other software tools.
Look further down this page for course outline and booking information.
Building on the basic-level course, the 3-day advanced course will focus on advanced aspects of C# scripting and plugin programming for Grasshopper. In addition to going in-depth with Rhino geometries, custom graphics display, and Rhino-Grasshopper interaction, we will learn various techniques that can vastly improve code performance and significantly speed up execution time (including using multi-thread parallel computing and using spatial data structures e.g. R-Tree to accelerate 3D search operations). We will also discuss and demonstrate good programming practices for organizing and structuring code to allow more reusability, extensibility and maintainability.

What our students say: 'I just wanted to say how pleased I was with the Grasshopper course. I thought it was excellent value due to the quality of tuition, the location and the way it was run. Arthur is a fantastic teacher and considering the complexity of the subject all the topics were covered at a good pace and in great detail. I hope to come back and enroll on the Level 2 as soon as I am able.' Zak Kurtha (Grasshopper L1 with Arthur - November 2015)
Evening classes run from 18:00 to 21:00.
This fast moving, one day KeyShot training course is ideal for those who are new to KeyShot or rendering in general and those who are transitioning from a built in renderer such as PhotoView 360.
KeyShot is a fast, photorealistic renderer with physically accurate materials and a number of lighting and environment options. Whilst the product has a user-friendly drag and drop interface there is much depth to the product in terms of options and settings that will be explored during this training.
This course can be delivered in our own classroom or on-site at your premises and of course we can deliver more advanced bespoke content.
