Volume I covers an introduction to Rhino and it's workspace. It also introduces Rhino's basic 2-D commands as well as general editing and transformation commands that will be the basis of the tutorials in Volume II. 2-D designs and technical drawing tutorials will show the use of these commands and strategies for jewelry projects.
Volume II introduces you to Rhino's 3-D space and covers 3-dimensional design and modeling strategies for jewelry models. Tutorials will advance from beginner level to high intermediate.
Go through these books from the beginning and, slowly and thoughtfully, take yourself through the step-by-step chapters.
Repeat a chapter if you feel that you had a struggle getting through it. The extra time spent will pay off! Stay calm and understand that everyone goes through this stage!
Avail yourself of the Help Menu in Rhino. The reader is urged to take advantage of this resource within Rhino. If you see a command described in a tutorial that you may not fully understand, press “F1” and you will be taken to the Help menu for that command.
Try to use Rhino in your own work as soon as possible. That is the way you will really learn it. A struggle now will accelerate your learning curve.
Take Rhino courses. You will always learn something more with each course that you take.
But... understand that most of the learning starts at home – working on your own computer. Don’t feel that you have to keep taking courses to continue learning. The hard work is done by you alone.
