Rhino, or Rhino 3D, is actually short for Rhinoceros 3D, a 3D computer graphics and CAD (computer aided design) software application. Rhino is often used for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing.
This is an advanced course, so you should already be familiar with Rhino 3D, as this course will expand on your existing skill sets in the software. If you need to, check out this course on Rhino 3D basics.
In this course you will take your Rhino 3D modeling skills to the next level by learning about:
- The basics of shelling
- Manual rebuilding
- Building parting lines
- Shelling geometry
- Draft angles
- Parting lines, chamfers, and Radii
- Adding screw bosses
- Creating edge locators
- Refining curves
- Generating advanced surfaces
- Much more
This course is for anyone who wants to learn advanced modeling skills in Rhinoceros 3D. It is not intended for beginners who are just learning the program, but for those who already have a strong understanding of Rhino.
This course and its modules and tutorials are based off of Rhino 5, but you should be able to follow along and apply most of the principles and techniques in either newer or older versions.
