Event Description

Learn how to use 3D CAD Modeling software to make your STEM classrooms come to life.

Professional trainers from McNeel and RhinoFabStudio  will introduce you to the main functions of Rhino and a short introduction to Grasshopper too!

NURBS Modeling with Rhino Course Outline

In this comprehensive 2-day class you'll learn to create and edit accurate free-form 3-D NURBS models. This fast-moving class covers most of Rhino's functionality, including the most advanced surfacing commands.


In this class, you will systematically move through the user interface, command access, creation and editing curves, surfaces and solids.

Expected Outcomes

After this course the student is expected to be able to:

  •   Utilize 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 SmartTrackTM 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 different file formats

  •   Render the model using Rhino Render

  •   Dimension and annotate model with test and hatch

  •   Use Layouts to arrange views of model on paper for printing

    Target Audience

    This course is for design, graphics, and technology educators who want to efficiently learn the concepts and features of the Rhinoceros modeling software at an accelerated pace in an instructor-lead environment.


    Windows skills and a desire to model are desired. Previous drafting and modeling experience helpful but not required.

Great news. Due to our wonderful PTSA President Jackie Cespedes and the hardwork of our Teacher Rodnee Wimberly we have free catered lunches. On Thursday we will have Pollo Tropical and on Friday we will have Chipolte.

Of course we will have the standard Gulfstream hospitality of coffee and snacks in the morning.

Our superintendent will visit on Thursday.

We are so looking forward to this event.

I will be escaping the drizzle and rain of Seattle for some Miami sun and for some fun presenting at this Teacher Training Event event.

I will be covering Layout and Annotation Features like text, dimensions, hatching, linetype, print weight, and print color in Rhino 5.

I will be presenting from this Layout Tutorial. Download it, print it, bring it, and be ready with your questions.

We can also talk about blocks, if you are interested. Let me know, mary@mcneel.com.

See you next week.
