RHINO: Level 1

Level 1 training shows you how to produce 3-D models using NURBS geometry and arrange models for export, annotation and plotting.

In class, you will receive information at an accelerated pace.

** Students are required to bring their laptops with Rhino installed on it, and a mouse with right & left click, and scroll wheel.

Target audience:

The training guide presents topics, commands, and procedures that are important for every Rhino user. The training guide will offer exercises and examples with common objects that allow the concepts to be thoroughly covered for all students, regardless of field or industry.


The training guide consists of 24 hrs of training, in three full days.


In Level 1, you learn how to:

  • Use the features of the Rhino user interface

  • Customize your modeling environment

  • Create basic graphic objects—lines, circles, arcs, curves, solids, and surfaces

  • Model with precision using coordinate input, object snaps, and SmartTrack™ tools

  • Modify curves and surfaces with edit commands and gumball

  • Use control point editing to modify curves and surfaces

  • Analyze your model

  • Display any portion of the model

  • Export and import models to and from various file formats

  • Render the model using Rhino Render

  • Dimension and annotate model with text and hatch

  • Use layouts to arrange views of model on paper for printing
