2Shapes for Rhino aims to solve all the jewelry design needs, helping jewelers around the world.
One of the most powerful features of 2Shapes for Rhino is the intuitive parametric UI. It allows you to change any property of your design, from finger size, gem, profile, including the thickness of prongs.

Simplicity is a must; for that reason, you don’t need to worry about complexities and focus on the results, your perfect design.

Mesh2Surface streamlines and optimizes converting scanned data into a perfect NURBS model. The tools available are:  Fit basic primitives; Revolved and extruded surfaces; Advanced editing of profile for revolved and extruded surfaces; Segment meshes based on fillet areas; Measure the fillet radius; Constraint extracted shapes; Find the symmetry of the object; Align an object to the world coordinate system; Build best fit free form surface from part of the mesh; Create curve based free form surface; Deviation Analyzer. Mesh2Surface does it all.

RhinoResurf for Rhino, a reverse engineering tool that gives Rhino the ability to reconstruct NURBS surface(s) from mesh or point cloud with specified precision. RhinoResurf also provide features for free-form surface modeling from polygon lines or meshes.

RhinoResurf is designed in a way that the plugin is very user friendly, and easy to understand. Once loaded manually on first use, it will automatically load itself into the Rhino environment later. The new commands will be added to Rhino’s existing commands, and a new submenu called RhinoResurf will be created.
