Basic Rhinoceros 3D knowledge is recommended
This subject covers curve to NURBS-based modelling techniques using Rhinoceros 3D and is suitable for students with an entry level understanding of Rhino. The subject begins with a brief review of Rhinoceros essentials, establishing integral workflow fundamentals, before exploring more advanced 3D manipulation techniques. These skills are applied to the realm of interior architecture, where students become well-versed in working between highly articulated 3D models and their 2D representations.
The focus is on turning the Rhino models into fabrication-ready items for laser cutting, 3D printing and explore other fabrication methodologies. Students then learn to pair Rhinoceros with other design packages like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and VRAY to post-produce their work in a time-efficient manner. By the end of the subject, students are comfortable quickly and freely representing their design ideas in future academic and professional scenarios. The subject is structured around 6 x 6-hour sessions, with a gap day in between to allow students to consolidate their knowledge, complete homework and catch up before commencing a new topic.
