The main theme of this tutorial is how there are multiple solutions to any modeling challenge you might encounter and evaluating the suitability of different approaches depending on the purpose of the model. Different techniques might be used when modeling for manufacturing as opposed to illustration, and different techniques are more commonly used when ‘Designing’ as opposed to ‘modeling.’ There’s more than one way to skin a hat.

This is an ‘advanced’ tutorial. It is intended to be easy to follow, but the emphasis here is on what NURBS and Rhinoceros can do, not necessarily how to execute every command prompt-by-prompt. The Evaluation version of Rhino includes a number of basic tutorials to help you get started. Commands are referred to by the name used for typed entry and are Highlighted.
