3D DIGITAL MODELING: RHINOCEROS

Organised by RogLab, Performed by POTI-POTI.org

28.08.2014

Training for rapid 3D modeling with CAD (Computer Aided Design) software Rhinoceros will take place in RogLab. First level training will be held on Thursday, August 21, from 4 pm to 8 pm, while second level training will be held on Thursday, August 22, at the same time. You are cordially invited to apply!

Rhinoceros is a vector design CAD software for creating, editing and analyzing NURBS (non-uniform rational basis spline) curves and surfaces, which enables the user to model free-form 3D geometries. It is based on the openNURBS technology and in many aspects it shares the open source philosophy. The speed, accuracy and high quality of the surfaces created using this software, together with its flexible and powerful edition and transformation tools, make it essential for those who are new to 3D digital modeling of complex geometries. Rhinoceros is ideal for developing projects from initial conceptual design to final rendering, analysis and prototyping.

More information about Rhinoceros 3D and a free trial / educational version of Rhinoceros 3D software is available at its website: www.rhino3d.com. Being a vast platform, higher level courses will be provided at the POTI-POTI.org facilities.


General Information:
Objective: To get introduced to free-form surfaces and complex geometries and their 3D digital modeling with the Rhinoceros platform. The workshop will especially emphasize the understanding of NURBS (non-uniform rational basis spline) curves and surfaces and the use of the most powerful tools that Rhinoceros provides us in working with them.
Target audience: Architects, product designers; jewelers; naval, aeronautical or automotive engineers, craftsmen and any other professionals interested in working with free-form objects.
Working language: English with Slovene speaking assistant.
Workshop material: Participants must bring their own personal laptop with Rhinoceros installed.
Number of participants: 5 to 7 people.
Promos and perks:Take units 1 and 2 together and get a free assistance at RogLab Open Days – a monthly RogLab membership.
