Freeform and computational design in Rhino and Grasshopper.
The Essential Guide to Digital Jewelry Design is a bilingual edition, in Japanese and English, that introduces the world of CAD Jewelry Design using Rhino - the most versatile 3D modeling program - and Grasshopper plug-in which is integrated into the newest versions of Rhino, known as a GAE (Graphical Algorithm Editor). With the help of Grasshopper algorithms, you can create modeling procedures easily, enable simulations, modify, iterate and find better results by manipulating parameters. The book helps you better understand how to recreate your designs on the computer using the latest computational design techniques. Learn to build both simple and complex designs, and use the tips to extend your knowledge base for more advanced 3D Jewelry modeling.
