Advanced Rhino & Surface Modeling


Participants who have completed the Beginner Rhino course or have a working knowledge of Rhino 3D modeling will push their knowledge of working in Rhino from beginner to expert. Advanced Rhino & Surface modeling will teach you the unique advantages of surface modeling with NURBS and how it enables you to be a better designer and a better team player. By the end of the course, you will have the ability to understand surface modeling at a higher level and be prepared to push your learning further in Design Engine courses such as Grasshopper, Rhino for Jewelry, and Rendering with Rhino and Keyshot.
