Rhinoceros Level I course

Overview

The course offers an introduction to Rhinoceros, starting from the basis of Rhino interface and focusing on how to use commands properly and generate good models. It will cover basic 2d drawing, tracing and drafting techniques, along with their application to creating 3d surfaces.

Course duration: 3 full days or 6 half-days

 

Course content

  • Utilize the features of the Rhino user interface
  • Customize your modeling environment
  • Create basic graphic objects: lines, circles, arcs, curves, solids, and surfaces
  • Model with precision using coordinate input, object snaps, and SmartTrack™ tools
  • Modify curves and surfaces with edit commands and Gumball
  • Use control point editing to modify curves and surfaces
  • Analyse your model
  • Display any portion of the model
  • Export and import models to and from different file formats
  • Render the model using Rhino Render
  • Dimension and annotate model with test and hatch
  • Use Layouts to arrange views of model on paper for printing
  • Render the model using Rhino Render (Vray courses are also available)

The course will suit people who are interested in developing 3D computer-aided modelling and design skills using Rhinoceros. The course focuses on the fundamentals of NURBS modeling in Rhinoceros, so will suit users across a range of industries.
