Gemvision releases Matrix 7 design software version
Davenport, Iowa--Gemvision LLC has announced the release of Matrix 7, the latest version of 3D jewelry design software that includes radical new features.
Matrix 7 now offers the integration of T-Splines modeling functionality, enhanced Gem Tools and expanded V-Ray rendering capabilities.
The new range of surface modeling tools powered by T-Splines offer the user a new way to design organic and flowing jewelry elements. This approach to CAD elicits the look of fluid jewelry without the labor of building the model curve by curve. Built into Matrix 7, a vast library of starting point T-Splines help to jump start the user’s creations.
New Gem Tools offer more control over the layout of gems. Whether remounting customer gems or creating a stock design from scratch, there is a Gem Tool designed to make the job faster and easier. Matrix 7’s new V-Ray rendering engine allows users at any skill level to create photorealistic images of their jewelry designs and incorporate effects.
Other upgrades and enhancements found in Matrix 7 include a new F6 mode, which strategically places favorite tools in one customizable menu; expanded share modes, which provide an at-a-glance functionality with designing; and a new “smart flow” functionality that allows users to easily design in 2D and have a corresponding 3D model automatically created.
“Matrix 7 gives you more options than ever before,” Jeff High, Gemvision founder and president, said.
The first version of Matrix was launched in 2000. Currently taught at 55 schools and universities, Matrix is also supported by comprehensive Gemvision-sponsored training and user events worldwide.
Headquartered in Davenport, Iowa, Gemvision was founded in 1990 and now has facilities in Illinois, North Carolina and the United Kingdom.
