Course Description

Rhino 5 Level 1 is designed to give you a solid understanding of McNeel’s Rhinoceros software features and capabilities.  This course includes video demonstrations, quizzes and practical Let Me Try exercises, and accommodates all learning styles.

Rhinoceros is used in processes of computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), rapid prototyping, 3D printing and reverse engineering in industries including architecture, industrial design (e.g. automotive design, watercraft design), product design (e.g. jewelry design) as well as for multimedia and graphic design.

You do not need any previous experience with Rhino to take this course; however, it does assume a reasonable level of experience with the Windows operating system on your part.  While not absolutely necessary, some experience with other CAD or BIM software is helpful.
