Learning Rhino 4

Video Description

Learning Rhino 4

In this Rhino 3D tutorial video course, instructor Brian DiNola shows you how to get started with the powerful modeling tools in this professional level software. Utilized by many industries, Rhino3D is a powerful platform for just about anything from industrial modeling and architecture to custom design, and prototype development and more.

This Rhino 3D training video first tackles everything you need to know about the Rhinoceros 3D interface, explaining viewports, zooming, panning and more, so that you are never limited by the virtual workspace. Once you have mastered the program's basic tools, you can build practically anything you want piece by piece. In these Rhino tutorials you will learn how to work with curves, surfaces, solids, and meshes, taking basic contours and shapes and molding them into your own creative designs. As Rhino is also suitable for manufacturing and industrial use, you will also learn its prototyping, measurement, and printing tools, too. By the conclusion of this computer software training, you will be fully versed in creating models in Rhino 3D. Work files are included with the Rhino 3D tutorial so you can easily follow along with each lesson.
