3D Design has become an established procedure in all modern manufacturing processes. In this workshop, I wish to introduce this fascinating tool to jewellers.
We will work with the software programmes RHINOCEROS and SCULPTRIS. I will introduce the freedoms that computer-aided modelling can produce when combined with the artistic possibilities. RHINOCEROS, a construction programme for high dimensional accuracy, offers a number of tools for design and free forms. Due to its sculptural approach, SCULPTRIS is a useful supplement to the conceptual work in RHINOCEROS. The workshop will discuss the differences and strengths of both programmes. I will showcase the interaction of different tools and the application of commands on participants’ own projects. We will have access to a 3D printer (FORM 2+). The designed objects can be printed immediately in plastic. Also in 2020 we have been offered the use of a PRECISION LEGEND 2.0 - HAFNER LCD 3D-PRINTER (see box on the right), a new innovative maschine for the jewellery branch.
In cooperation with the casting workshop of Peter Vermandere (see 2nd workshop week) your CAD-models can also be modified and casted.
Previous knowledge in 3D Design is not necessary.
