hello everyone, how to create similar table like this, please help me create it. Thank you very much

It seems like just a group of a collection of number sliders, image sampler, value list and panels.
What an effort, though...

the ropes, there are some places I do not see them linked togethe

"the ropes, there are some places I do not see them linked together"

right click onto your component and set "Wire Display" to hidden...

-> Starting Grasshopper, Open the File and slide to excat location everywhere takes at least 2 times longer as typing in 5 commands :/

ok. I have hidden

I do not understand this .You can describe in detail help me

It was a reply of HK's post and has nothing to do with your question.

As HK implied, I don't really see a sense in doing these trivial shapes in grasshopper, when you are able to build them with very few Rhino commands manually. I'm not a big fan of automating simple modelling tasks, and I really doubt that you will be faster. Imagine loading a file, type in exact values, Bake etc. whereas you simple create two outlines and extrude them. Anyway, as an alternative to create user interfaces, have a look at human ui plugin or you simply use the Grasshopper Remote Planel. For further information, just search the forum

Tom, this model for a piece of jewelry (a ring) has fifteen(?) visible parameters for customizing a part to an individual's personal requirements.  It's a perfect application for GH and doesn't need any other UI than these standard GH components.

I have no idea why the image sampler is there or what it does but I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss this approach to building a GH model.  I have built a few myself with very similar blocks of UI parameter components.

Yes, I am a jewelry designer, I use gemvision matrices to design, it has functions like rhino and has more features like gems, prong ..vv, very good for jewelry design . But rhino and matrix are difficult to modify models. grasshopper doing this very well, i'm a newbie so i'm having trouble with grasshopper, communication language is the hardest for me .i'm not good at english, thanks for helping me

well, this is of course my opinion. You are right in some specific cases this can be a good task for Grasshopper. Its just that my working experience showed me that when it comes to shape modelling a skilled cad-designer can outperform any parametric/generativ approach in terms of speed and quality. Only exception are very repetitive tasks such as patterns in general. But even here I made best results with hybrid approaches.

In any case, 15 params doesn't mean very much. I mean you need half of them for basic information such as radius, thickness etc. These params are chosen by a number or by clicking information.If you are lucky you have them as default values in your command. The other commands are of type: Choose a or b. I mean as a designer you already have an idea or a sketch so you simply know what you want before starting modelling. I could argue more about when to automate and when not. Its just that 50 % of all question here in this forum are due to lack of knowledge about modelling rather than about generative design in general. 

By using shortcuts such as "tr"-for trim you are able to perform up to 5-30+ commands a minute depending on the task and complexity of the command. So creating shapes like the one above, wont take longer then 5 minutes. I'm pretty sure you are not much faster with Grasshopper. Pen and Paper are even faster. And I believe no jewelry designer is designing 200 different rings a day. If he would need to generate more than then 20 variants he is probably not very good in designing. I always remember Autodesks commercial for Dynamo, saying "you can create a trillion of variants of a chair with valid properties". But no single chair shown was close to good looking or at least "well made". 

You can see hidden wires by simply clicking on each component; any hidden wires connected to it will be revealed.  In a complex model, hidden wires can really help make things more legible, especially for components or values that are widely used by many components.

thank you, in grasshopper i have problems with prongs and gems, it's not like what i need, can tell me how i can create tools to work to my liking. Do I have to learn python?

You don't necessarily need Python, no, but you might find it handy to install Anemone (for looping) and check out this thread:

http://www.grasshopper3d.com/forum/topics/cycle-operations-in-gh

There have been other examples posted here over the years of Grasshopper used for jewelry design that are really amazing.

P.S.  At this moment, the forum sidebar has several images of jewelry posted (and designed?) by this guy: http://www.grasshopper3d.com/profile/wieland

No indication that he has posted any code to this forum, unfortunately.

Daniel González Abalde made a nice plug-in specifically aimed towards jewelry called peacockhttp://www.grasshopper3d.com/group/peacock
