Course Objectives Students will be instructed in the principles of 3-D modeling using Rhinoceros NURBS modeling software. In a laboratory setting, students will have an opportunity to practice the strategies and methods commonly used in creating and solving 2-D and 3-D geometric problems. Information given in lectures and demonstrations will address aspects of modeling free-form curves, surfaces, and solids. Students will be introduced to a variety of 3-D model applications as they are used in illustration, engineering, design, documentation drawing, entertainment, and animation.
Textbook Rhinoceros Level 1 and 2 Training Manual.
Learning Outcomes After successful  completion of the course, the student will be able to:
  1. Demonstrate knowledge of various methods of digital fabrication
  2. Demonstrate understanding of principles of digital fabrication and digital workflows
  3. Introduce principles of digital workflows
  4. Introduce principles of rapid prototyping
  5. Demonstrate understanding of 3D modeling concept
  6. Develop basic geometry including curves, solids, and surfaces
Teaching Methods Weekly studio-based lectures (6 hours per week). The students will work with the teacher on the assigned design task. The teacher will take a part as project manager, learner-centered and interactive/participative methods will be emphasized throughout the studio. Incomplete project will not be considered for final presentation.
