Rendering of "shattering bottle" rapid-prototyped sculpture

The folks at McNeel have started a series of free Rhino webinars, a couple of which presented by myself, and I hope to do more this year.You can view past presentations and learn about upcoming presentations on the Rhino Wiki.

Brazil V2, high-end rendering for Rhino, is in stock for the price you would pay for it in a bundle with Rhino!

The online training schedule has a new Level 1 Online class starting soon. Note that I've had to make some changes to class times, they are now scheduled for evenings (Eastern Time,) please let me know if you would be interested in weekend courses.

main  design and modeling  rhino classes  sales  About

I'm an Industrial Designer who provides Design and 3D Modeling services for a variety of tasks, including:

  • concept development
  • manufacturing
  • jewellery
  • geometry repair and translation
  • reverse engineering
  • illustration and animation

Additionally, I've developed custom scripts to automate specialized processes. If you have a job that you think could benefit from 3D CAD but it's not yet widely used or you haven't found a solution you like, a little scripting in Rhino could be the answer.

Educational versions

With all McNeel products the educational version is identical to the commercial version, the only restriction is that the license cannot be transferred to someone else. It can even legally be used for commercial work, during and after your education. "Upgrading" to the commercial license is simple: when a new version becomes available and you no longer qualify for the educational discount, you buy the regular commercial upgrade.

Proof of status is required: student or faculty id, or purchase order.

Lab Kits

Lab kits are available only to schools. They can be installed on all the machines in one room, or as a floating license for 30 users over a network.
