Course description

Rhino 3D Introduction to Intermediate 5 Week Evening Course

Rhino 3D is a commercial CAD software with multiple 3D modelling tools. The software enables you to create shapes with great precision and detail and is compatible with most design software. 

This London Software Training Rhino 3D Introduction to Intermediate 5 Week Evening Course is ideal for anyone looking to learn or expand their 2D and 3D modelling skills. You'll learn how to create 3D shapes from working with curves or mathematical formulas (NURBS). By the end of the course you'll be able to take your sketches and accurately model and document your designs ready for the next stage of design realisation, whether that be in architecture, engineering, manufacturing, rendering or animation.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The Rhino 3D Introduction to Intermediate course is ideal for those looking to gain the confidence to use the software with ease in a tailored, supportive environment. No experience is necessary and we'll have you designing with confidence within the first hour of your class, whatever your ability. 

Working knowledge of Rhino 3D is beneficial for anyone looking to further their creative career or gain employment within product, furniture, architectural or jewellery design industries.
