RhinoGold - New Service Release:

Hi friends,

We are coming out with a New Service Release of our CAD for Jewelry 'RhinoGold' ( We have been working hard to fix minor bugs, improve functionality of some tools as well as adding a few new ones.

Within the next days, we will be publishing quick videos about those new functionalities (such as being able to select your own curve for any profile on the jewelry builders)

Regarding bug fixing, find below the list of those bugs we have been reported to. If you reported a bug that has not been corrected, please, accept our apologies and email us or write on our Forum (forum.tdmsolutions.com) about it. :)

We're aware of other minor bugs and our WISH-LIST keeps growing.  We're working on, and, as always, we THANK YOU for all the positive and constructive feedback. Those little improves will be published periodically as Release Candidate.

Release Candidate as a pre-release builds that the Development team believes are stable and reliable, and ready for broader testing. If you're an advanced user and want to see the latest improves, slide it to ON!

Check image below.
