In this comprehensive level I course you learn the basics and more of Rhinoceros.
After three days, you can work on your own merits, and you are able to draw almost everything. In the course we use the ‘Working woth Rhinoceros 5.0’ book, written by michiel van der kley, in which most topics are covered.
