Learn how to use Rhino and fundamentals of 3D modelling, use this powerful software to bring your ideas and design into reality.

 

Rhino 3D is essentially a freeform surface model developing software that does not require manual coding to create different models. It allows you to create complicated powerful designs that are workable and extremely precise. It provides many 3D modelling tools that facilitate great precision from a 2D sketch to a 3D scan.  Rhino is suitable for various usages, architecture, jewellery design, furniture, and any other kind.

 

Doesn’t matter what needs you are going to use Rhino. By completing this course, you will learn how to start with modelling and produce simple, however precise, models, which will be so helpful for your study and career.

 

If you know the basics of rhino and 3-dimensional space, you can start with the Level 2 course.

 

Learning objectives:

  1. Use the features of the Rhino user interface
  2. Customization of the program environment
  3. Create basic 3D objects—lines, arcs, curves, circles, surfaces, and solids
  4. Modify curves and surfaces with edit commands and gumball
  5. Modify curves and surfaces using control points
  6. Model with precision using coordinate input, object snaps, and SmartTrack tools
  7. Export and import models to and from various file formats
  8. Run simple renders using Rhino Render
  9. Dimension and annotate model with text and hatch
  10. Use layouts to arrange views of model on paper for printing
