The next generation of the award-winning 3D jewelry design software features numerous upgrades and new functionality that expands the possibilities of computer designed jewelry
(DAVENPORT, Iowa) - Gemvision, LLC proudly announces the release of Matrix 7 - the latest version of the popular 3D Jewelry Design Software. Matrix 7 includes radical new features, most notably 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 an entirely new way to design organic and flowing jewelry elements. This new approach to CAD elicits the look of luxuriously fluid jewelry without the labor of building the model curve by curve. Built right into Matrix 7, a vast library of starting point T-Splines models help jump start the user’s creations.
Ground breaking 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 that will make the job faster and easier.
The new V-Ray rendering engine integrated into Matrix 7 allows users at any skill level to create stunning, photorealistic images of their jewelry designs and incorporate seductive effects.
Other upgrades and enhancements found in Matrix 7 include:
- New F6 Mode strategically places favorite tools in one customizable menu accessible from one tap of the keyboard.
- Expanded Shade Modes provide not only a new look, but new at-a-glance functionality while designing.
- New Smart Flow functionality makes it even easier to design in 2D and have it automatically create the corresponding 3D model.
“With new T-Splines in the Matrix 7 toolbox, designers now have the option of 2 distinct ways to approach 3D modeling depending on the characteristics of a particular design,” states Gemvision President and Founder, Jeff High. “And new V-Ray rendering in Matrix 7 greatly improves the two things required in creating jewelry images. When you need it beautiful but you also need it fast, Matrix 7 can deliver an incredible looking render with only 2 clicks of the mouse. And when you want to adjust and refine every detail of the rendered image, Matrix 7 gives you more options than ever before.”
The very first version of Matrix was launched in the year 2000. Since then, it has become the CAD choice of many of the world’s most famous jewelers and has earned multiple awards. Currently taught at 55 schools and universities, Matrix is also supported by comprehensive Gemvision-sponsored training and user events all over the world.
