INSIDE RHINOCEROS 5, is a well-designed introduction to using the latest version of Rhino. This book bridges the gap between theoretical and software-oriented approaches to computer modeling by providing a balanced presentation of theory, concepts, and hands-on tutorials. It begins with an overview of the Rhinoceros5 interface and progresses to explore wireframe models and the construction of curves. This book contains an in-depth examination of surface modeling, taking your students step-by-step through surfaces construction using Rhino and discusses in detail solid modeling methods, rendering, engineering drawing, and outputting to various file formats. INSIDE RHINOCEROS 5, concludes with a set of projects aimed at allowing your students to apply Rhino in real world design situations.
