What is this track about?
In this track, you can expect to learn the very basics and essentials of mdeling in Rhinoceros 3D a commonly user software in professional practice.
Rhino 3D uses (NURBS) as a method of modeling (Non-uniform rational basis spline.) A mathematical model commonly used to represent curves and surfaces. Essentially, NURBS are mathematical models commonly utilized within the 3D environment for creating and defining curves and surfaces offering flexibility and precision for handling both analytic and modeled shapes.
For this reason, Rhino 3D can be wildly different from other 3D modeling programs. Specifically, programs that use Polygon Modelling methods. Which are just as common (Ex. Solidworks). Neither is better than the other, they are used according to need. NURBS tend to be better for free-flowing organic forms. Using NURBS, physically impossible shapes can be created. Whereas, Polygonal can be better for more practical forms used in manufacturing applications.
Why is this important?
Modeling with NURBS will call upon different actions and methods when modeling using a slightly different nomenclature than polygon modeling programs. Building with NURBS for the first time will require you to learn new terms and methods of constructing in the 3D environment.
The one thing to be wary of before we begin is that the Rhino interface will look very different on a mac as opposed to a PC. However, the difference is not drastic enough that it will hinder your learning experience. Most buttons, bells, and whistles will translate fairly smoothly between the two operating systems.
If at any time you are stuck at a portion, leave a comment on the instructional video and/or blog and it is safe to say most creators will get back to you quickly in hopes of better marketing their content.
