Computer Aided Design (CAD) can be a very useful way of designing jewellery particularly as the design file created can be used to create models for casting as part of the rapid prototyping process.


On the course you'll get a feel for how designing on a computer works by seeing tutor demonstrations then by trying out a variety of jewellery design rendering tools yourself with step-by-step tutor guidance.


By doing this you should be able to determine if designing using this method has possibilities for your style of Jewellery work and if CAD Rhino is suitable design software for you.

This course is designed to introduce you to Rhino CAD software and how its interface works through guided design tuition. 

A very helpful course to undertake before going to the expense of buying CAD design software.


Rhino software is widely used by Jewellery Designer makers in the industry because of its versatility and its compatibility with Matrix software design tools, however there are a variety of other software options for jewellers to choose from.


The online CAD course works through free software called TeamViewer.

This allows you to see the tutor’s computer screen and allows the tutor to see your computer screen.


Through this system you’ll be able to hear the tutor and ask questions, throughout.

Students will need to download software onto their computer to allow the teaching to proceed.
