This course is geared to individuals who will be using and/or supporting Rhino. The course explores advanced techniques in modeling to help participants better understand how to apply Rhino’s modeling tools in practical situations. In class, you will receive information at an accelerated pace. For best results, practice at a Rhino workstation between class sessions, and consult your Rhino reference manual for additional information.
Completion of Level I training, plus three months experience using Rhino is recommended.
In Level 2, you learn how to:
Construct and modify curves that will be used in surface building using control point editing methods
- Evaluate curves using the curvature graph
- Use a range of strategies to build surfaces
- Rebuild surfaces and curves
- Control surface curvature continuity
- Create, manipulate, save and restore custom construction planes
- Create surfaces and features using custom construction planes
- Group objects
- Visualize, evaluate, and analyze models utilizing shading features
- Place text around an object or on a surface
- Map planar curves to a surface
- Create 3D models from 2D drawings and scanned images
- Clean up imported files and export clean files
- Use rendering tools
