Rhino Level 1: 3D Surface Modeling

Course Duration: 40 hours

Overview: During this  Level 1 Rhino 3D Training course, participants will learn about surface modeling and discuss general modeling relating specifically to Rhino 3D Software. Participants will create and edit free-form 3D NURBS curves and surfaces. This fast-moving class covers Rhino’s functionality, including the most advanced surfacing commands. Time permitting, the last day of class will give students the option of learning basic concepts of Jewelry creation, A-class surfacing, or Z-Brush integration. Throughout the class we will cover best practices for working between Rhino and different rendering packages such as Keyshot. Rhino 3D Training is a must for participants in the Industrial Design field looking to further enhance their skills and Architects using Rhino modeling.

For a full description of Rhino and 3D training, check out our description page.
Prerequisite: Industrial Design degree or CAD experience helpful but not necessary.
