This CAD course will cover the Rhino tools and commands that you need to know in order to make basic solid shapes. You will gain an understanding of the interface and how Rhino uses points, lines, surfaces and solids to create printable 3D objects.
This course is a great way to play with ideas and be able to create repetitive and complex geometric shapes and/or produce minimalist and elegant jewellery after only a weeks intense training. Towards the end of the course we will explore rendering pieces through the KeyShot, creating realistic visuals of your designs pre-manufacture.

After the course:
After completing the course your understanding of how the software is structured will enable you to experiment with other tools on your own or progress to the fast paced Intermediate Course where you will learn how surface modelling works and how to create more advanced sculptural items. The intermediate course will give you a broad array of tools that will make your modelling faster and more extensive by giving you several different paths to archive a desired result.

Topics include:
Designing a range of jewellery pieces - Using basic commands in different ways to create a number of items (rings, earrings, pendants, findings etc.).
Setting up the user interface and layer palette.
Turning curves and lines into solids and complex geometry through repetition.
Using text to create and engrave.
Meshing, checking and exporting - Making objects ready for the 3D printer.
How to render visuals to professional standards with the KeyShot (Demo version).
