Makes learning Rhino 5 easy

Video training provider InfiniteSkills Inc has announced the availability of a new multi-part Rhino 5 Tutorial Video course, created to cover the program's primary drawing, surfacing and modeling capabilities, commonly used across the fields of industrial design, marine prototyping and jewelry manufacturing. The 93-lesson training course is narrated by longtime Rhino instructor Rob McCollough, who draws from his experience in university classrooms and the professional design world to offer a condensed introduction that beginners can respond to and quickly comprehend.

"Training for Rhino is in huge demand because the program can do so much," said Colin Boyd, sales director for InfiniteSkills. "Just as with our Rhino 4 tutorials, we try to keep the focus on core skills that can be used in many different design and prototyping workflows."

The Learning Rhino 5 Tutorial Video course begins with an introduction to the Rhino user interface, pointing out the basic layout of its viewport structure, and helping users understand how layers and object properties and manipulations work. Next, the training goes into 2D drawing techniques, illustrating the ways in which curve-based design differs from traditional line drawing, with advice for creating and editing Arcs, Polygons and Freeform Curves. Building on these lessons, instructor McCollough teaches surfacing teechniques, with tips for using extrusions, chamfers and blended surfaces to create varied textures, angles and finishes to meet different project needs.

"Like most tutorials from InfiniteSkills, the Rhino training uses a gradual model, that builds the viewer's confidence in core techniques to serve as a foundation for following lessons," said Chris Johns, content coordinator for InfiniteSkills. "In this case, Rob makes sure there's a firm understanding of 2D skills and drawing before diving into Rhino's full 3D capabilities."

The last half of the Rhino training video series explores Rhino's solid modeling and prototyping toolsets. Viewers learn how to create primitives and multi-dimensional extrusions and edit them using wirecutting, transforms and relational constraints. The course moves on to three project-centered examples, showing how to create a tire and rim, a razor and a mobile phone prototype using a culmination of techniques introduced in previous tutorials. Finally viewers learn how to analyze models to detect flaws and extrapolate critical data for drafting and 3D printing.

The complete Rhino 5 Tutorial - Training Video series is offered on both DVD-ROM and an instantly downloadable format from the InfiniteSkills website. Both editions are fully compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems, and both include functional working files that can be used to follow along with the author's examples onscreen. The Rhino training retails for USD $99.95, with shipping and distribution options for customers worldwide. More information about the course, including 13 free demo tutorials can be found on the Rhino 5 training page.
