Advanced Rhino Techniques

Video description

In this Rhino 4 video training course, 3D expert Brian DiNola teaches you advanced techniques that you can apply to the current version of this powerful 3D modeling software, as well as in future and past versions of Rhino.
The techniques taught in this training video assume that you have a basic understanding of using the 3D modeling software Rhino. Brian covers advanced techniques such as Hole Arrays, Wirecutting, using Mesh techniques, as well as extensive instruction on advanced scripting methods, using Command Scripting, RhinoScript and VBScripting. As well as showing you the techniques, Brian brings it all together with project-based sections, applying the techniques he is teaching in real-world examples.
By the completion of this video training course, you will have an advanced understanding of how to use Rhino to accomplish your 3D modeling needs. Included with this course are extensive project files that allow you to work alongside the author, with the files that he is working with.
