Modeling and Thinking in Rhino 7 (DES2101.01)

Derek Parker

Modeling and Thinking in Rhino 7 is an introductory course to Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Modeling and how those models can be used in real-world applications. This course will explore the use of Rhino to create interactive models that represent imagined designs for; manufacturing, architecture, and spatial sketching. Particular attention will be paid to how computer models relate to specific measurements, spaces, context, and future outputs. This course is aimed at building technical skills but will also consider aesthetics, functionality, and design concepts. Its ultimate goal is a feedback loop between conceptual development, workflow, and the generation of 3D Models. This course will culminate in a final portfolio of digital 3D model renderings and will serve as a prerequisite for the class Processing and Making with Rhino 7.

Learning Outcomes:
Gain a working knowledge of the Computer Aided Design software Rhino 7.
Understand the different workflows and outputs associated with the program.
Build experience translating 3D models into scaled 2D representations for presentation.
Practice using 3D Models in practical applications.
