Gem Cut Studio
« on: September 09, 2018, 07:21:49 AM »
Has anyone tried Rej's Gem Cut Studio yet?  He released it about a week ago at the AFG seminar.

I'm currently playing with the trial version, it's quite different to Gemcad and seems easier to design gems on, especially where you are looking for a specific L/W ratio.

I still have to learn how to read the optimiser.

I've had GemCan for about 3 or 4 years and haven't used it much. Got GemRay about a year ago and haven't used that too. Have used Bobs Rock Shop Online Tangent Ratio Converter 20 or so times to change all angles for different RI. Need to practice a lot I guess to be good.
Ive only hear good things about Rej's Gem Cut Studio.

It is easier to use than Gemcad.  Both Gem Cut Studio and Gemcad will do tangent ratio conversions in a fraction of a second.  I haven't done it in Gem Cut Studio, but in Gamcad, click on the row you are changing (say the 42 degree pavilion row) to edit it, then change the angle and press Apply Edit.  The whole pavilion or crown will instantaneously change.

There are some threads on using Gemray, and Robert Strickland has made some Youtube videos on getting started with Gemcad.  Proof cutting a known design such as an SRB is a good way to start with both programmes.

If you are a member of the Australian Facetors Guild, have a chat to your local branch about learning Gemcad.

We have Gemcut and love it, do a lot of design tweaking for changing Ri etc. It's an awesome piece of software particularly with it's real time render imagery.

Aye, it is pretty good, particularly for challenges like the one Paul Sabota put in the Facet Talk.
