About Lesson

This command allows you to set a selected gem into a Basket configuration.

Running this command will display its parameters in the Commands toolbar. Your first step should be to choose whether you want to start working on a Standard style provided by 2Shapes, or an Organization style you have previously created.

On its parameters, you can find the prong configuration as well as their diameter, the height over the gem’s girdle, the whole basket height, among others. Also, you can click on the Rails tab to see the parameters for the lower and upper rails.

When you confirm your changes, the Basket will be listed on the Outliner toolbar.
