Student Organized Event: Rhino with John Heida

February 22, 2013
3:30 pmto5:00 pm

Rhino is a cutting edge software program that is used in the architecture, engineering, product and jewelry design industries for 3D modeling objects using N.U.R.B.S. surfaces. Come see a demonstration of the power and possibilities of the software at the free Talk on February 8th.

Rhino provides all the commands and power to accurately model and document your designs ready for CAD drawings, renderings, laser cutting, 3-D printing, prototyping, CNC milling and other manufacturing processes. Rhinoceros 5 will be available for the PC this year (and Mac in 2013?)  and has unlimited plug-ins to satisfy the needs of every artist, designer and engineer.
