A set of tools for creating jewellery within Rhino6 and Rhino7 for Windows and MacOS
I moved future updates for MacOS to the "Package Manager" inside Rhino.
Make sure to FIRST delete the old plugin folder before installing the new version via "Package Manager".
(old Plugin folder: /Users/"yourusername"/Library/Application Support/McNeel/Rhinoceros/MacPlugIns/FreeJewels)
Updated to 1.0.2 for Windows as of March 2021
So far there are the following commands:
FJ_PaveSet (Place circles on a surface. Now with hotkeys "WASD" for size and offset!(not for MacOs))
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_OrientObjectsOnSurface (Orient objects as block instaces on a surface and rotate/relocate the instances while keeping normal alignment)
FJ_Report (Calculate object weights of different materials. Needs materials from the FJ_Mat command)
