|Week 1 – Advanced Modeling|
|Learning Objectives||This session will provide an overview of the goals and expectations of the course. A workshop in Rhino will emphasize the use of modeling aids and model preparation for rendering and advanced visualization. Students will learn workflows for collage techniques between different software.|
|Uses Tool(s)||Rhinoceros , Illustrator CS5 , Photoshop CS5|
In this course, we will be working with Rhino 5, a number of Rhino plugins and the Adobe Creative Suite. It is assumed that students in the course are already familiar with Rhino, therefore we will spend most of the time discussing efficient tools and techniques for advanced modeling, and representation. At any time, feel free to browse this Wiki to find more information on a certain interface or search for other workflows that will not be covered in this course.
