Rhino course overview

Rhinoceros is a stand-alone, commercial NURBS-based 3-D modeling tool. The software is commonly used for industrial design, architecture, marine design, jewelry design, automotive design, CAD / CAM, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering as well as the multimedia and graphic design industries. Like many modeling applications, Rhino also features a scripting language, based on the Visual Basic language, and an SDK that allows reading and writing Rhino files directly.

In this course, we will cover Animation, Refining Polygonal Models, Creating Materials, Applying Textures and Rendering using Rhino.

Few practical Rhino 3D based projects at the end of the course will ensure that you can apply Rhino on your 3D and animation projects.

This short Rhino course is hands-on, instructor-led and classroom based. This training can be taken as a part-time evening course or even on the weekends. A list of all upcoming public Rhino training course is given on training dragon website. Each course is restricted to a maximum of ten delegates to ensure an excellent training experience.

Who is Rhino training for?

This course is for you if you would like to take full advantage of the best software for all things in 3D animation and modeling. Whether it is animation, modeling, NURBS curves, surfaces, and solids this software is an industry standard and the most powerful one in its range.

Prerequisites for Rhino course
