Description

Throughout this training, we'll build a relatively complicated ray gun. We will use techniques already covered in the 'Beginner Rhino' course, as well as expand and add to our tool set as we progress through the model. New surfacing and trim tools will be covered, along with adding details that will make your Rhino model stand out. By the end of this tutorial you will be able to take on more demanding designs and acquire a better understanding of the problems presented when building complicated elements and how to solve them. Software required: Rhino 5, Photoshop CS5.
