Learn how to design and model 3D objects with Rhinoceros (Rhino), a leading and powerful 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. Beginning students will learn the foundations of 3D CAD modeling through assigned projects with the real-world applications of 1) rendering objects for design, proportion, and presentation, 2) developing plans for constructed objects in metal, wood, or other materials, and 3) creating digital files for output to computer numeric controlled (CNC) machines such as 3D printers, CNC routers and mills, CNC plasma-, water jet-, or laser-cutters, etc. Students will have the opportunity to create sample objects from their 3D models. Continuing students will refine their modeling skills and design-for-application approach with both geometric and freeform objects, and will work on independent projects with instructor guidance. Group demonstrations, class discussions, and one-on-one attention are used throughout the course to assist each student with their creative 3D modeling goals.

Please note: No experience required. Attendance in the first class is mandatory. Project material fees not included. Open Studio Access and Advanced Studio Access times available for additional fee. Natural fiber clothing, long pants, and closed-toe shoes are required while working at CIADC. Complete information given during class #1.
