WIP of a set of tools for creating jewellery within Rhino6.
!Minor updates of all commands on 06/03/2020. If you install the new toolbar, you should reinstall ALL commands!
So far there are the following commands:
FJ_PaveSet (Place circles on a surface)
FJ_PaveDrill (Insert drills into the cicles created with FJ_PaveSet. !Block instance. Explode befor using for boolean!)
FJ_PaveStone (Insert brillant cut stone meshes into the cicles created with FJ_PaveSet. !Block instance!)
FJ_GemMaker (Create differnt stone cut meshes)
FJ_Weightreport (Calculate object weights of different metals and diamond.)
FJ_OrientObjectsOnSurface (Orient objects as block instaces on a surface and rotate/relocate the instances while keeping normal alignment)
FJ_MirrorCurve (Create mirror curves)
FJ_IterativeBoolDif (Iterative Boolean Difference. Failed and successful booleans get droped on new layers)
FJ_IterativeBoolUn (Iterative Boolean Union. Failed and successful booleans get droped on new layers) <Buggy>
To install the commands just doubleclick the .rhi files.
For the toolbar extract the Free_Jewels_Toolbar_xxxxx.rui fom the free_jewels_toolbar.zip. It might be a good idea to save the file to C:\Users\"YOURUSERNAME"\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\UI. Drag and drop it in your rhino canvas (if it dosen´t show got to Tools>Options>Toolbars. Click on Free_Jewels_Toolbar and toggle Free_Jewels).
When a new command gets released the Free_Jewels_Toolbar_xxxxx.rui needs to be deleted and reinstalled. In Rhino, got to Tools>Options>Toolbars, right-click on the Free_Jewels_Toolbar_xxxx and select "Close". Than install the new toolbar.
Or you can just delete the old .rui file and than close the Tab on the Rhino canvas and restart Rhino.
If one of the older commands has an update (new upload date) delete the old folder from C:\Users\"YOURUSERNAME"\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-ins and reinstall.
This is a WIP and has no warranty whatsoever :)
