About RhinoGold
By taking advantage the power of 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) and making it jeweler-
friendly, RHINOGOLD lets you design 3D jewelry while generating a detailed color preview
image that can be printed or emailed as well as generating a full report of the piece.

RhinoGold is a 3D Jewelry design software to design jewelry in 3D and then, output the file,
compatible with any Printing Machine which generates dimensionally accurate models
ready for casting.
