The British Academy of Jewellery held the launch party and interactive knowledge sharing session in celebration of the launch of new book by tutor Jack Meyer, ‘Advanced Jewellery CAD Modelling in Rhino’ on September 2.
The event also featured ‘Jack’s Rhino CAD Challenge’. Jack challenged guests to ask him their hardest CAD questions which he answered live at the event.
Advanced Jewellery CAD Modelling in Rhino is written for intermediate and experienced Rhino 3D CAD users who wish to improve their understanding of NURBS and subdivision modelling methods in Rhino 3D as they apply to jewellery design and manufacturing.
The ultimate goal of the book is to build up a holistic problem-solving strategy to give the reader greater confidence in building their own original creations.
