Intermediate Level Rhino Workshop

Join us this two days long workshop at September 16th and September 17th to start modeling efficiently!

This course is for the design professional who wants to efficiently learn the concepts and features of the Rhinoceros modeling software at an accelerated pace in an instructor-lead environment. This fast-moving class covers most of Rhino’s functionality, including the most advanced surfacing

commands.

Prerequisites:

Windows skills and a desire to model. Previous drafting and modeling experience helpful but not required.

Structure

In this class, you will systematically move through the user interface, command access, creation and

editing curves, surfaces and solids.

 

After this course the student is expected to be able to:

– Utilize the features of the Rhino user interface

– Customize your modeling environment

– Model with precision using coordinate input, object snaps, and SmartTrack™ tools

– Modify curves and surfaces with edit commands and Gumball

– Use control point editing to modify curves and surfaces

– Analyze your model

– Display any portion of the model

– Export and import models to and from different file formats

– Render the model using Rhino Render

– Learn to Use Meshes

– Use Layouts to arrange views of model on paper for printing

– Get an introduction to powerful plug-ins Paneling Tools and Grasshopper

What You’ll learn

-Understand the interface of Rhino

-Develop an effective workflow while doing a project in Rhino

-Acquire a big picture understanding of free form modelling through Rhino

-Understand SubD Commands

-Understand NURB and Mesh commands

-Understand Complex commands and applying them to real projects

-Learn Analyzation Tools to better understand when fabrication comes into play

-Learn effective plug-ins to better assist in complex functions

-Learn fundamentals of rendering using Vray

-Introduction to Grasshopper 3d

Detail Schedule

 

Requirements
A computer with Rhino 3d version 7. A version of AutoCAD or photoshop is optional. Either a trial or
subscription of Vray for Rhino.


Curriculum
Day 1: 9AM—12PM
The Foundation
After a brief introduction, the following concepts will be covered:
– Get acquainted with the Rhino screen and menus
– Navigate around the Rhino model
– Create 2-D lines, polylines, and NURBS curves
– Modeling setup and mode functions: ortho, grip, snap, and planar
– Fast 3-D solids and surfaces
– The Rhino layering system
– Delete, hide, isolate and freeze objects
– Discover display commands used to view different parts of the model.
– Pan, zoom and reset model views
Precision Modeling:
Use coordinates and constraints to model easily and accurately. Move off the x-y plane and use view
ports to establish the current construction plane. Draw polygons and ellipses. Draw free-form curves
and compare interpolated and control points curve.
– Draw with absolute, relative rectangular, and polar coordinates
– Distance and angle constraints
– Using object snaps
– Analysis commands: length, distance, angle, radius
– Smart tracking and constraints
– View ports, construction planes, and modeling in 3-D space

– Elevator mode
– Drawing circles, arcs, rectangles, ellipses and polygons
– Model free-form curves
– Create helix and spiral curves


Day 1: 1PM—5PM
Basic Editing:
Use edit commands to produce complex and detailed variations on the curves. Loft and ex-trude curves
into surfaces and solids. Learn additional editing commands and use them to build practice models.
Reinforce concepts of model setup and drawing accurate 2-D geometry to build precision 3-D shapes.
– Edit curves with fillet and chamfer
– Loft and extrude curves
– General editing: move, copy, rotate, mirror, scale
– Use the Gumball to move, copy, rotate, scale
– Array polar and rectangular
– Offset curves and surfaces
– Trim and split for curves and surfaces
– Extend and extend to surface
– Creating Blocks
– Practice modeling and editing
– Tween Curves
– Create Surface from multiple curves
– Sweeping curves into a geometry with single or multiple rails
– Develop surfaces with multiple curves
Let’s Model!
Reinforce the commands and skills gained in the class by creating several models going over protocols
from class. Generate models into working drawings. Do basic rendering of geometries.


Day 2: 9AM—12PM
Intermediate Edit and Surfacing Commands:
Learn additional editing commands and use them to build practice models. Reinforce concepts of model
setup and drawing ac-curate 2-D geometry to build precision 3-D shapes.

– Introduction to NURBS modeling concepts and terminology
– Free-form curves
– Control point editing of curves and surfaces
– Rebuild curves and surfaces
– Use the nudge modeling aid
– Create deformable shapes
– Curve creation through projection
– Split surfaces with curves and surfaces
– Blend between two surfaces
– Create solid primitives and solid text
– Twist geometry
– Tween Surfaces
– Edit Geometry with Cage Edit
– Filet Surfaces
– Create and edit mesh
– Flow Geometry on surface

Day 2: 1PM—5PM
-Solids and Surfacing

-Learn how to model with solids and solid text. Use Booleans to shape your model. Extrude, loft, and revolve curves into sur-faces. Use sweeps to create surfaces. Use advanced surfacing techniques like blend, match, and surface from network of curves.

Plug-ins:
Introduction to paneling tools. Develop complex surfaces by morphing geometries.
Brief introduction to grasshopper and it’s capabilities.
Brief Introduction to Vray and good strategies for visual presentation.
