Design & Laser Cut Jewelry with Rhino

Dive in Rhino (a 3D modeling program) to create jewelry designs ready to be cut by a laser cutter.

You do not need to have experience with Rhino itself, but experience with at least one modeling software (Rhino, OnShape, Fusion360, TinkerCAD, etc..) is recommended in order to follow this course comfortably.

Make Skateboard Molds with Rhino

Rhino is a 3D modeling software that, while may look daunting, is actually a super intuitive tool for design. It's useful for making drawings, renderings, animations, files for 3D printing, and much more. This class will go over the interface and some basic commands to introduce the functionality of Rhino. After the introduction, we will learn how to model a fidget spinner ready to 3D print!
