Got my hands on Designer a week ago. This is my first ring ..
I want to start a set of easy training tutorials for jewelers like me who hate reading manuals . :D

any tips on the software or training material would be greatly appreciated. I have watched all the videos that came with the package downloaded the manual read most of it ..
I think I might have to spend some time with delcam and do their basic training.

Hi Michael...and welcome to PowerSHAPE..oops i should say Delcam Designer :)
There are quite a few tutorials on the Delcam website that you can follow to have a first introduction.

http://www.delcam.com/software/powershape-e/tutorials/

This will give you a good start on wireframe / surface and solid design.
You will then be able to play a bit more and learn how to integrate the reliefs made in ArtCam within Designer (Mesh modeling)
But if you want to be a 100% efficient on PowerSHAPE / Designer, i would recommend to take the training with Delcam.

In the meantime, if you want some hints and informations, feel free to ask.

Sam
