Rhino 3D NURBS Modeling Course


(24 hours)

  • Certificate issued upon request.

  • No experience required

  • This course is for all industries and disciplines.

  • Presented logically, utilizing experience with traditional skills, this hands-on course will guide you through the parts of Rhino that can be confusing, understanding 3D space and view-port directions, and the NURBS surface structure. While promoting good modeling techniques, multiple surface tools, and modeling approaches, are covered, applicable across all industries. The class structure is relaxed, promoting participation and sharing of knowledge.

  • Surfaces covered: Edge curves, Extrude, Sweep1 rail, Sweep2 rails, Revolve, Loft, Network curves, Patch etc. Methods covered: Fillet, Blend, Booleans, Image reference and tracing, 3D to 2D plan and Surface flattening, Text etc. Rendering: Object color, Texture map, Reflectance map, Bump map, Lights. Fabrication Overview: Understanding 3D printing, CNC machine processes and modeling for fabrication. Grasshopper Overview: Transitioning from Rhino to Grasshopper and parametric modeling.

  • Complete custom documentation, is provided to allow class time to be utilized becoming comfortable using Rhino, and ensure, after the class you will be able to repeat and reference model construction, to create your own 3D models.

  • There are no hidden costs. Everything is provided in class, bring only a flash drive to copy extra files to take home with you.

  • This course, can be repeated at no extra charge within 1 year of original registration (subject to space and schedule availability).

  • Group and Corporate training packages available, at MagneticVisions or at Corporate site.

Classes currently open for registration. See upcoming classes here.

  • This class focuses on learning the tools of Grasshopper with the same logical, structural approach
     developed in our Rhino course. Emphasis is on using Rhino and Grasshopper in combination to utilize
     Grasshoppers parametric options for models and workflow.

  • As with our Rhino Course our goal is to lay a good foundation with custom documentation to allow you to
     continue to learn on your own.

  • This course does not cover Algorithmic modeling, Data Sets-Series, Rangers, Lists, or Sequences.

Classes currently open for registration. See upcoming classes here.
