This course is a continuation of digital modeling in the NURBS and Solid environments using the Rhino3d software package. It will expand the surface building tools with an emphasis on surface continuity and model dimensions. Models will be evaluated for continuity and surface edges in preparation for use with the 3d printer. The Flamingo rendering environment will be further studied with emphasis on understanding material and lighting parameters for the use in creation of custom material and lighting environments. Comparisons of the model building strategies of Solidworks and AutoStudio with Rhino3d will be addressed, along with their interactions used to compliment various modeling environments. Generative Rhino3d plug-ins such as Grasshopper, T-Splines, and Panelling Tools may be introduced. The uses of internet resources will be stressed for further learning independence. This course aims to increase understanding of digital modeling through the comparisons and complimenting of different modeling and rendering environments.
