# Rhino Level 2: Designing with Rhino 3D

## Description

This Level 2 Rhino 3D course covers the basics but goes much further and discusses imports into Pro/Engineer or SolidWorks geometry. Students will learn about surface modeling and discuss general modeling approaches relating specifically to Rhino 3D Software. In this class you’ll learn to create and edit accurate and free-form 3D NURBS curves and surfaces. This fast-moving class covers most of Rhino’s functionality, including the most advanced surfacing commands. In this comprehensive five-day class you’ll learn to create and modify accurate and free-form 3D NURBS models. The last day of this class also includes one day of Flamingo, Vray or Maxwell rendering instruction.
