Who this course is for:



Rhinoceros 3D is the most versatile program, allowing you to turn your imagination into a 3D model with almost limitless possibilities. It’s the ideal tool for modeling organic geometry. From a conceptual sketch to 2D drawings, then 3D models, and finally visualizations. Everything is doable with just one piece of software.

This course covers the fundamentals of 3D modeling in Rhinoceros. This course is meant to help participants who have no or little experience with 3D modeling. Learn the fundamental features and concepts necessary to completely comprehend how Rhino works.

In the first part of the course, we will learn how to do 2D drawings and why Rhino is a great alternative to AutoCAD. Then we will turn any 2D drawings into 3D models in the best and most efficient way. Finally, we will prepare our model for Visualizations in Rendering software like Lumion. 

This course is designed to help you start 2D drawings and 3D modeling in Rhinoceros 3D. You will have a complete understanding of the different techniques and methods in order to model a building from scratch.
