Lots of digital materials such as tutorial Rhino files, various stone templates and cutters, etc. and PDF files are provided for your use. Hands on and interactive class. You will need a PC laptop Rhino 5 or 6 Windows version installed.
You can download evaluation version from here:
If you use Mac, dividing hard drive with Bootcamp and install Windows is recommended.
Window's version of Rhino is much more powerful and user friendly. However you can use Mac version if you would like. Parallel is not supported.

Please see Testimonial page from former students for class review.
**Due to limited seating, cancellation or credit request has to be made at least 14 days before a scheduled class. This gives us the opportunity to fill the class. No refund or credit will be given for no-shows.
This class is designed to create familiarity and build solid foundation with Rhino 6. You'll learn to create and edit accurate free-form 3-D NURBS models. Class covers most of Rhino's functionality, including the most advanced surfacing commands. Class use jewelry as geometry however professionals in other field can benefit from the class. You will learn step-by-step 2D drawings and 3D modeling with various exercises and strategies. Lots of supported digital materials such as tutorial Rhino files, various stone templates and cutters, etc. are provided for your use.
(More advanced modeling/Create jewelry portfolio with KeyShot 8)
This class is designed for people who are already familiar with basic 3D modeling with Rhino. More advanced modeling projects with useful commands, short cuts and tricks! We spend some time leaning how to manuplate Gumball as a very powerful editing tool. We can interactively push and pull a surface in the rhino environment while maintaining a work flow.
Also introducing photo realistic rendering with KeyShot. KeyShot is everything you need to create amazing visuals fast. The real-time 3D rendering workflow displays results instantly and reduces the time it takes to create realistic product shots. From scientifically accurate material and environment presets to advanced material editing and animation, creating interactive product visuals or sales and marketing imagery has never been easier. Post processing in Photoshop is also covered.
Create impressive jewelry portfolio with KeyShot!
Introduction to Generative Jewelry Design
This 2 day class will give you a functional understanding of Grasshopper concepts and parametric design.
Learn and explore how Grasshopper generates unprecedented fluidity and automated tasks to go further the design process, allowing for much greater speed with working on complicated and repeating forms. Grasshopper creates parametric modeling to automate production, new forms, shapes, patterns and your own interfaces. It is only possible with the algorithmic modeling.
