RhinoGold 2.0 News

There are a lot of news and improves tools. In this section we will comment most of them.


General improves:

Fleximetrical Technology:

This new technology allows creating parametrical objects to be edited without the complexity of the standard linear parametric tree of parametrical software.


It is a window located, by default, on the right. It has three sections: Explorer, Materials, and Library.

Explorer: appears a list of parametrical objects we have on our document.

Materials: Materials List for Real-Time rendering.

Library: shows our designs.

User Folder: independent configuration for each user.

64bits: Fully functional in 64bits.

Corporative Networks: works in corporative networks and with users without administrator rights.


Jewelry Tools:


Gem Studio:


Gem Studio allows us to place different stone cuts in our models in accordance with the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and custom sizes. New stones cuts in 2.0.

Gem Creator:


This tool allows us to create any gem shape using a curve. This new functionality breaks any limitation using any gem cut.

Convert gems: simple shape and real shape:


This functionality simplify the gem shape, it improves x24 the performance. Convert in one click to simple shape, and real shape.



RhinoGold offers a powerful tool for pave design, in automatic and dynamic mode.

Automatic Pave:


It creates paves automatically. There is the option to define a size or use our stock. There are models available.

UV Pave:


It creates a pave automatically. There is the option to define one or several sizes.

Dynamic Pave:


Extremely useful to complement human, automatic or advanced pave.

Bezel Studio:


Important improves, now allows creating bezels more complex, save libraries and completely parametrical.

Head Studio:


Important improves, now allows creating heads more complex, save libraries and completely parametrical.

Prong Studio:


Important improves, now allows creating prongs more complex, save libraries and completely parametrical.

Cutter Studio:


Important improves, now allows creating cutters more complex, save libraries and completely parametrical.

Ring Wizard:


Wizard to create rings according to profiles. It is very quick and practical for new users and really powerful for advanced users. The rings are editable parametrically.

Ring Size Creator:


RhinoGold creates the base circle, the starting point for modeling our ring, using standard measures from Europe, the UK, the United States and Japan.

Personalized regions:


It allows creating ring sizes regions.

Jewelry Vault and Library:


Jewelry Vault makes it easy for us to manage our different models. In this way, users can create their own component libraries to use in future designs. It is integrated to the browser and it is really interesting to create your own parametrical library.

Linear Array:


It allows us to create arrays both easily and dynamically and permits us to define advanced parameters, such as scaling, rotation, gradients...

Polar Array:


It allows us to create polar arrays easily and dynamically and permits us to define advanced parameters, such as copies, angle, justify...

Dynamic Profiles:


This allows us to use our section library to move them, rotate them and change sizes. Very useful for creating any type of accessory in a matter of seconds. The profiles may be defined by the user.

Manager Profiles:


Now profiles are really easy to manage. We can rename or delete them in just one click.

Add Profiles:


Profiles Creation and Display Mode of itself have been improved.

Scale Rings:


It allows us to scale one ring to other sizes in just one click.

Copy by Gems:


Powerful and easy tool to copy any object from stones. Useful for creating grain or complex prongs.


Effectiveness improves:



It allows us to cut any object simply selecting planar curves.

Go to center:


It places one or several objects on C Plane just clicking anyone key



Join all curves of our document in just one click.

Extract Pipe Center:


Creates the central point of a pipe.

Convert images and hand drawings to graphic vectors, useful for 3D design, milling and engraving.

Place Image 1.1:


We can import any sketch, drawing or image at 1:1 scale just in one click. In this version the image is attached on the document.

Relief Studio:


This tool creates reliefs from curves. We have the option to define the relieve profile. The result can be created in meshes or surfaces.

Height fields by colors:


Creates 3D models from pictures, but in color. Define a height for each color, and pumping on the transparency.

3D Textures:


From an image, create a 3D Texture on an object. 3D Textures are fully manufactured because is a standard geometrical object.

Celtic Knots:

Creates Celtic knots in 2D and 3D, in curve and solids.
