Rhino Level 2 for Architects and Engineers Training Course

Suitable for architects, structural engineers, urban designers, building envelope engineers, and landscape architects amongst others, this Level 2 Rhino for AEC course introduces and explains industry standard Rhino workflows. Training is suitable for both Rhino 3D for Windows and Rhino 3D for Mac OS X.

Courses structured to help you work more effectively with Rhino

This comprehensive course starts with a brief introduction as to how, when and why Rhino 3D is used in professional architectural studios. A Rhino refresher then follows before the course moves on to discuss NURBS topology in detail. The aim is to deliver a core understanding of the principals of NURBS so that both the advantages and limitations of the topology can be utilized in building clean, efficient and editable geometry. These principals are then put into practice with several architectural exercises during which a range of tools and strategies are utilised. The course then progresses through the structure as outlined below and finishes with an Introduction to Grasshopper.

Delivering Live Expert Rhino Training

Online Rhino 3D Courses from Simply Rhino Training are all Live sessions with our Rhino Authorised Trainers. This live and interactive delivery format allows for discussion and timely questions. We record the sessions too, so you can go over the material again and as required following the class; so we’d say this is the best possible online learning approach, first live, and then access to recordings of your courses.

Recordings of your course are available for the purpose of viewing (not downloading) and up to a period of 12 x months following your class, we host these videos behind a password so they are secure & private, meaning only you and your fellow classmates can view these recordings.
