Hello, I start my youtube channel few weeks ago for posting Rhino tutorials. Many of them are for jewelry but apply to other profession as well. I hope you enjoy it. The above links is one of the video.

Hello Rhino Commun,

I am a Sculpture trying to 3d print a piece in cast-able resin so I can then cast it in silver. I am trying to get a twisted cage like structure in the general shape of the model i've included. I am pretty new to rhino but have worked in 3Dsmax. I have tried so many different ways to make this shape but can never Boolean the opposing twists (group going counter clockwise and group going clockwise) I don't know if there is a work flow I am not doing but so far I have tried:

Curve (line and circle) - exude along curve - cap - polar array - boolean U - twist - mirror -BonnleanU (and I always get Boolean fail, even if i slightly move one group around)

I have tried exploding then join.

I tried using a mesh.

I tried using torus's and polar array then twist, stretch and taper and still can boolean.

I always end up with a ton of polygons and surfaces from twist.

For casting I need the smallest diameter to be 2mm (which its not).

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could maybe point me in the right direction.

Much Thanks!

Twist Cage

Hello Rhino Community,

I am a student and new to Rhino, new to Jewelry Design, acutally, just passing through. I have years of experience with poly-/subd modeling techniques (Blender, 3ds max). The only reason I bought Rhino (edu) was that Autodesk is kind of shitty in all aspects after graduation and I need a DCC to make precision/technical models with (Blender is so-so...). One of those models being an engagement ring for my girlfriend of 5 years. Yes, I am picky and I want a special design for the ring. I know all the ways on how to achieve the desired design in Max. However, through my research, I learned that NURBS models are best suited for 3D printing.

Does anyone know how to go about making a ring like those seen in my attachments? Is there perhaps a Tutorial on that kind of design?

Should I perhaps use RhinoGold or RhinoRing?
And if so, would it be legal to make an engagement ring for
private purposes with a trial-version?

Best regards,

I have been trying to create a mobius ring band, where there is a smooth transition from vertical plane to horizontal plane and back to a vertically flipped plane. I have tried various ways in rhino but the transition is always too smooth, it seems to autocorrect the crossing over. I have also asked a few rhino users and they have not been able to help.

Do you guys have any suggestions? Or can place me in the right forum if I am not in the right forum.
