Rhino 4

Video Description

Rhino 4 is a premiere NURBs-based 3D modeling package that gives you the tools you need to create amazing content. From industrial design and engineering, to jewelry and logos, Rhino’s flexible toolset can help you to construct them all. Whether your modeling tasks require precision snapping and measurement, analysis and editing, or you just enjoy the modeling process as a hobby, Rhino can fit into your workflow. The latest version is full of new tools and features that will make creating compelling 3D content easier than ever. In this VTC course, professional illustrator, television animation art director, and writer Dwayne Ferguson takes an in-depth look at Rhino 4. He takes a step-by-step look at the interface and tools before guiding you through a series of projects that will highlight the tools in a more hands-on way.
