Nakagin Capsule Tower – Rhino Level 1

Workshop Rhino Level 1_Nakagin Capsule Tower

Nakagin Capsule Tower – Rhino Level 1

This course is for anyone new to Rhino 5. Recognized as an official introductory course, all trainees receive an Official McNeel Rhino level 1 Certificate upon completion. In this training course you will learn to create and edit accurate free form 3d NURBS models. This fast-moving class covers most of Rhino’s functionality, including the most advanced surfacing commands. You will systematically move through the user interface, command access, creation and editing of curves, surfaces and solids.

The course is intensive (16hrs) and spans two consecutive days (10:00 to 18:00). Each trainee receives the official 260 page courseware as part of attending this course.

Case Study

At decode™ effective training is achieved via an intriguing goal by contrast of generic exercises. All the Rhino level 1 teaching material will be taught by modeling the Nakagin Capsule Tower, built by Kisho Kurokawa in 1972 at Shimbashi, Tokyo, Japan. In a step by step modeling way each student will be guided through the experience of completing a challenging and interesting design project, and managing to use commands in synergy through various techniques.
