INDES 360 Introduction to Rhinoceros 3D • 5 Cr.
Introduces fundamental concepts and methods for planning, organizing, and arranging digital models using Rhinoceros 3D modeling software. Various exercises throughout the quarter will be used to illustrate various strategies for generating three dimensional form using Rhinoceros.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
- Illustrate and evaluate design intent using Rhinoceros software, by identifying and applying the appropriate basic concepts required to navigate, create, and modify innovative three-dimensional objects.
- Prepare expressive, accurate, organized, efficiently constructed three-dimensional models of objects, architectural forms and interior spaces in Rhinoceros.
- Produce renderings for use in project presentations that reinforce design intent, employing Rhinoceros software as well as the Flamingo plug-in for Rhinoceros to selectively manipulate light, color, texture, and composition.
