Gemvision matrix clayoo vs. rhino 7


I’m going in a new direction with my 3D modeling and I am considering the purchase of Gemvision Matrix which includes the Clayoo software. It also includes v-ray…

IS this really just Sub-D and Rhino 7 - with some automation-templates designed specifically for the jewelry industry BUILT-IN ? IS IT WORTH IT? Can I accomplish the same thing in the same amount of time in rhino 7 sub-d as I can in Matrix ?

I would like to get some feedback from Matrix users and NEW Sub-D Rhino 7 users who pump out more customized jewelry _ stuff, we can make from scratch in Rhino. We wouldn’t need crazy pave settings and wedding rings that all look the same. We want to make floral pendants and custom faces for example. Eventually these will turn into 3d prints for wax.

It took me years to develop my skills in Rhino and I am always looking for shortcuts.

I want sub-d rhino 7 to be the answer but i’m wondering what the advantages of matrix might look like even when I purchase the rhino 7. Maybe I do not need matrix or clayoo. I’m actually thinking about just looking into sculpting tools / free plugins etc… suggestions welcome

Thanks Ya’ll
