This command works like an “on-off” button and you can activate,disactivate it by clicking on its button.
You can undestand if its is “ON” if there is its icon on any view bottom right.
If it is “ON” and you select a prong or a stone ( round ,real or user stone ), you can move, rotate or scale it and it will be alwais oriented on its base object .
If it is not oriented for some reason, the command will ask you for a Surface, a Polysurface or a Mesh on which to orient it.
There is a “COPY” option whic creates a copy of selected object ,always mainteining the orietntation.
Transformations performed with easygumball don’t loose History!
You can use shortcuts indicated in rhinoceros command line while editing with easy-gumball
This command allows to change the direction of a selection of stones by 180 degrees against their construction plane.
This command allows you to orient a selection of stones, prongs or other “easy” objects on a Surface or Polysurface and mesh to link them by rhino history.
You have these options :
- keep support / change support – if you want to keep possible support items have in their memory or if you want to change it
- Uv / Closest Point / Closest Point Plus Uv
uv : if you want to use u,v values objects have in their memory and to give a “u-v” based building historybehavior.
closest point : if you want to find the closest point to the support from the object center and to give a “closet point” based building history behavior.
closestpoint + uv : if you want first to find the closest point to the support from the object center and then to find there u,v values to put in objects memory and to keep for building history so as to give a “u-v” based building history behavior.

Essential command for the transformation of generic objects into compatible Gems or tips EasyJewels3D
This command allows to quickly scale large quantities of objects with a percentage value starting from the centroid of the object itself.
This command allows with:
- Left click to turn round design stones into real round gems suitable for rendering
- Right click to turn real round gems into round design stones
This command allows to create revolution round stone from a selection of curves.
You can select any curve. The command will consider only circles!
Unlike “Insert round stones command ” (which allows only standard diameters for stones), this command allows you to create stones with the diameter you want.
Remember that, if you will turn this stones into real stones, they will get standard diameters too.
This command allows you to create circles from a selection of curves.
The selection of curves may include closed or open curves , polylines …
In the case of open curves it will be asked if you want to turn them to circles
This commands creates central points of selected gems.
This command allows to put in line a selection of points of any object compared to a line or a curve.
