Rhino Essentials


This course introduces designers to the essentials of Rhino 3D. Students will learn the interface, basic drawing skills and the essentials of 3D Modelling with both Surfaces and solids. Students will also learn how to extract 2D drawings and are introduced to rendering.
Best for:

Designers looking to introduce precision 3D modelling and drafting into their workflow.

Difficulty:
Duration:
3 Hours

Learning Objectives


  1. Participants will be able to draw, modify and measure lines and curves for documentation and 3D modelling using Rhino 3D software.
  2. Participants will be able to model surfaces representing architectural form using Rhino 3D software.
  3. Participants will be able to extract and present 2D drawings from 3D geometry using Rhino 3D software.
  4. Participants will be able to apply basic rendering techniques to visualise a design using Rhino 3D software.

What our Members are Saying




If you want to get ideas out of your brain and into 3D design, or even to 3D printing like me, this is the place to go.




This learning platform is world class. Our first and second-year students are now producing work previously only reserved for Masters-level students.




I really enjoyed the videos, they are so clear and easy to understand. So amazing to see what can be done with Rhino!




We are excited to roll out this world-class training platform to our Australian and overseas offices.
