I am finally at the point that I can write just anything for Rhino.
My goal to write a useful related set of plug-in's that create
finished ring designs for visualization and manufacturing. These are
for the customer, retailer, and manufacturer. I am most interested
in settings that hold larger fancy diamonds.
With a such a plug-in you can design the ring in a few seconds by
entering in all the proper parameters. You can see an example of
this at: http://www.ringhunt.com/plugins/crossover/index.html
What plug-ins would you like to see me write first?:
1.) Simple shanks/bands with many profile options?
2.) Lettered bands?, any demand for poems on rings?
3.) Simple Celtic designs with knots and braiding?
4.) Square shanks?
5.) Diamonds? - it's a given, but where does it stand in your
6.) Simple Tiffany settings? (Great for visualization when you can
do it in 2 seconds.)
7.) Eternity / Channel settings?
8.) Simple three stone rings?
9.) Settings with bezel heads for round and fancy shapes.
10.) Pave options?
11.) Automation tools? (example -- create 5-10 basic setting models
for a diamond in your inventory, render them, then create the HTML
code to display all these on your web page?)
12.) What else???
Obviously some of these are related, and dependent on others. I
don't have much interest at this point in signet and class rings,
but I will do some plug-ins for them if they are simple to do, and
demand is there.
Speak up, you have a change to steer the path of my development
