“RHINO” (RHINOCEROS) Workshops
Hosted by Interior Architecture
Visiting Professors Mona Ghandi and Randy Damico of Interior Architecture will be presenting two RHINO Workshops.
The workshops are about “Rhinoceros:” 3D modeling software that can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS, curves, surfaces, and solids without limits on complexity, degree, or size. It is accurate and flexible. Any geometry created in Rhino can be exported to laser cutters, milling machines or 3D printers. This makes Rhino different from other general 3D modeling tools, which use polygons, where you can create great images, but which lack manufacturing precision.
Rhinoceros is used in processes of computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), rapid prototyping and reverse engineering in industries including architecture, interior design, industrial design (e.g. automotive design, watercraft design), product design (e.g. jewelry design) as well as for multimedia and graphic design.
In this workshop we will introduce how to start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, scan data, or only an idea and demonstrate how Rhino provides the tools to accurately model and document your designs, making them ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing or construction.
Part 1: Friday, October 24th from 2:00-5:00 pm in the Create Space Lab – 235 Putnam Hall.
Part 2: Friday, November 7th from 2:00-5:00 pm in Grover Center computer lab E211 (second floor).
Please join us. Bring laptops if you have them to work along side the limited number of computers in the lab spaces.
