This 2 day training course, exclusively developed for Decoding Craftsmanship II, starts with a refresher on Rhino basics before moving on to an understanding of NURBS topology. This understanding is then applied to a number of exercises detailing the creation of clean, optimised geometry and controlled freeform shapes. Modeling strategy is covered and examples of where each surface type in Rhino is best suited are demonstrated. Strategies to manage large models are also examined along with tips for exporting and importing data.

The creation of 2D drawing information is explained, along with a special section on creating STL files for rapid prototypes and 3D printing. Finally various presentation and processes are covered.

Programme Objectives:

The overall objective of the course, created for design and engineering professionals of all disciplines who have a basic understanding of Rhino, is to not only improve their overall knowledge, but to allow them become more confident and productive.

The course contains intermediate level material and begins with explaining NURBS topology in more detail before moving on to practical examples demonstrating efficient modeling techniques, modeling strategy and avoiding common modeling problems.

Programme Prerequisites
Attendees should already be using Rhino and have a good basic understanding of the Rhino interface and command structure.
