Are you interested in 3D making, but you’re unsure whether or not you can tackle 3D modelling? It’s high time to grab the rhino by its horn! From February till April, RogLab is offering a free class in Rhinoceros 3D thanks to financing by the FabLabNet project.

The class will upgrade your knowledge in 3D modelling - or build it from scratch - and enable you to prepare all the necessary files for independent work on RogLab’s equipment, ranging from 3D files to be used for 3D printing and 2D files needed for CNC milling machines and engraving. Don’t let your software skills get in the way of your creativity and join us at the workshop!

The free workshop is reserved exclusively for RogLab's users that have successfuly completed at least one training session or that have applied to one and have covered the user's fee.

About Rhino 3D
Rhino 3D a.k.a. Rhinoceros is a mathematical NURBS modeler (non-parametric). It’s an incredibly powerful tool for creating models and prototypes for industrial design, engineering and architecture; it’s easy to use and is compatible with visualisation tools and tools for mechanical animation (V-ray and Keyshot). The user interface is similar to AutoCAD, so transitions from that program are especially easy. It’s both Windows and OS compatible.

Menthor
Cveto Kunešević is a 3D designer/creator with 15 years’ worth of experience in 3D modelling in Rhino and Fusion 360 programs in the fields of architecture, engineering and industrial design. As RogLab’s regular collaborator he’s exceedingly familiar with hurdles that creatives come upon on a day-to-day basis.

Time&place
The workshop will take place on Thursdays from 5-8 pm. The lessons are divided into 3 levels, depending on the participant’s existing knowledge, of altogether 10 lessons lasting 3 hours each. You can take part in one or more levels.

Intended audience

 

The free workshop is reserved exclusively for RogLab's users that have successfuly completed at least one training session or that have applied to one and have covered the user's fee.

Basic level - for beginners with no prior knowledge. By taking part in the workshop, you’ll be able to model basic 3D shapes independently and prepare 3D files for print.
7., 14., 21. and 28. February

Intermediate level - for participants that have taken part in at least two lessons from the basic level course or that have prior knowledge of any 3D modeler. After taking part, you’ll be able to independently produce models of intermediate complexity, organic models and be able to work with textures.
7., 14. and 21. March

Advanced level - for participants that have taken part in at least two lessons from the basic level course and one intermediate lesson, or that have prior knowledge of any 3D modeler. After taking part, you’ll be able to independently produce models of a more advanced complexity, create intricate organic models and be able to work with textures, lighting and visualisations.

28. March, 4. and 11. April

Application

Application

You can apply each day at RogLab from 12:00 to 20:00 by confirming that you've taken part in at least one training session in the independent use of our equipment or have applied and paid the user's fees for a training session. Each level of training session also requires a 50 EUR reimbursable deposit.

 
Necessary equipment
Bring your own laptop equipped with Rhino 3D. You can download the 90-day trial version free of charge here.

The author of all the exercices is Kubasek Krzysztof, who kindly allowed us the use of his video lessons.
 

Price
Participation in the workshop is subsidised and therefore free of charge, however, to confirm your place at the workshop, a 50 EUR deposit is necessary. The fee will be reimbursed in full to all participants that attend 3 out of 4 lessons (beginner level) or 2 out of 3 lessons (intermediate and advanced levels). This measure is introduced following previous experience of attendants registering and failing to attend workshops, taking up available spaces and preventing those genuinely interested in the class to take part.

Basic level

Lesson 1: telephone
The exercise is intended for all who wish to learn the basics of 3D modelling. Participants will get to know the basic functions of Rhino 3D and the process of drawings that later serve as a basis for creating 3D volumes.


Lesson 2: chair
The exercise is intended for all who wish to learn the basics of the 3D modelling of organic shapes. Participants will get to know the basics of modelling organic shapes that are prevalent in design today.


Lesson 3: candelabra
The exercise is intended for all who wish to upgrade their knowledge of the 3D modelling of organic shapes. Participants will get to know complex functions, such as projecting curves onto basic surfaces with which to carve out spaces within a volume.


Lesson 4: speaker
The exercise is intended for all who wish to upgrade their knowledge of the 3D modelling of organic shapes and textures. Participants will get to know functions used for shaping sharp edges in 3D volumes so as to make the models more lifelike, as well as the use of textures.

Intermediate level

Lesson 5: Stormtrooper helmet
The exercice is intended for all who already possess a basic knowledge of 3D modelling and want to perfect their knowledge in modelling 3D shapes. Participants get to know advanced functions for modelling organic shapes, rounding edges and cutting organic shapes.


Lesson 6: Headphones
The exercice is intended for all who wish to learn advanced functions in 3D modelling; functions widely used today to design products. Participants will get to know a combination of  functions to produce mathematical and organic shapes, and then use them to create a 3D model of a set of headphones.


Lesson 7: Car wheel
The exercice is intended for all who wish to learn advanced functions in 3D modelling. Participants will get to know a combination of functions to produce mathematical shapes, and then use them to create a model of a car wheel. They will also learn about functions used for negative volume and creating drills.

Advanced level

Lesson 8: tricycle
The exercice is intended for all who wish to learn advanced functions in 3D modelling needed for creating contemporary products. Participants will get to know advanced functions needed for drawing organic shapes, learn the basics of lighting a 3D model and symmetric drawing.

Lesson 9: drone
The exercice is intended for all who wish to learn advanced functions in 3D modelling with which to draw very complex shapes. Participants will get to know advanced functions needed for drawing organic shapes, the functions for quick arrays and the basics of lighting a 3D model.
 
Lesson 10: catamaran
The exercice is intended for all who wish to learn advanced functions in 3D modelling with organic shapes. Participants will get to know advanced functions needed for drawing organic shapes, the functions for quick arrays, the basics of lighting a 3D model and applying textures and labels.

 

The workshop is part of the "European School of Makers" programme, part of FabLabNet, which is co-financed by the Interreg Central Europe.
