Rhino Modeling for Marine Designers (Apr 2013)
Rhino Modeling for Marine Designers (STARTS March 31, 2013)
Six-Week Course, instructed by Cliff Estes (www.basline.com)
In this course, we’ll assume that the student does not know Rhino at all, except that he/she has acquired and installed the program and spent some time becoming familiar with it.
We will begin by learning to work with curves, then surfaces, then move into fairing a simple chine hull, followed by a more complex sailing schooner hull. Finally, when you have mastered the skills necessary for the foregoing projects, you will move on to a self-directed project of modeling a complete hull/deck/superstructure of your own design.
It is important for you to know that this course will not teach you anything about boat design. There are experts far more qualified than this instructor to teach you that subject. In this course, you will be expected to know the meanings of terms such as port, starboard, forward, aft, inboard, outboard, stem, forefoot, keel, skeg, etc. if you need help in understanding these, we recommend taking a course in marine design, which this course is not.
Note: The demo version of Rhino will get you started, but will likely expire before you have time to complete the course.
Registration for this course is $390. There is no additional processing fee.
Please Note: This is NOT a "work at your own pace" course. You will have assignments and exercises to complete each week.
