This course is an introduction of digital modeling in the NURBS environment using the Rhino3d software package. It will focus on the foundational skills of curve and surface creation in the NURBS environment along with rendering for model presentation. Comparisons of the model building strategies of Solidworks and AutoStudio with Rhino3d will be addressed, along with their interactions used to complement the others' modeling environment. The uses of Internet resources will be stressed for further learning independence. This course aims to increase understanding of digital modeling world through the comparisons and complimenting of different modeling and rendering environments.
