Jewellery Design with Rhino & RhinoGold - Basic

We have been an Authorized Rhino Training Centre since 1998, when Rhino was originally released. We provide a complete Rhino training program, comprising three levels of courses on 3D modeling with Rhino, Jewellery Design with RhinoGold, Flamingo rendering course, as well as custom, on-site, and individual training. Our scheduled courses are conducted in small groups (2-6 students) in a spacious computer lab with a separate workstation for each student. In our training, we put emphasis on each student's thorough understanding of the covered material. We apply an individualized approach for each student so that everybody is able to thoroughly understand performed exercises and proceed at their own pace. Therefore, nobody has to rush to catch up with somebody else or wait until other students complete their assignments. Our graduates receive a certificate upon completion of each course.

 
In this course you will learn from the beginning the fundamentals of effective jewellery design with Rhino and RhinoGold. This is the most important part of the learning process, since the thorough knowledge of these fundamentals is the prerequisite for further growth and the ability to cope with the demands of the intermediate and advanced levels of jewellery design. Upon the completion of this course you will be able to design various basic pieces of jewellery. You will also learn how to output your designs for 3D printing.
Even though no modeling experience is necessary, this course is also beneficial for those who have some 3D modeling experience and/or previous training but who have not learned all basic functions of Rhino.
