Course Objectives This course aims to analyze and implement the basics of 3 dimensional modeling and design in industrial design by using Rhinoceros.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Student will be able to recognize the Rhinoceros interface and to use the basic modeling aids.
  • Student will be able to use Rhinoceros as a basic modelling program.
  • Student will be able to create 3D models from 2D drawings and images by using Rhinoceros.
  • Student will be able to develop different modeling strategies for different products in Rhinoceros.
  • Student will be able to present 3 dimensional digital models by using rendering software and be able to model 3D objects for 3D Printing and Prototyping.
Course Description This course aims to analyze and implement the basics of 3 dimensional modeling and design in industrial design by using Rhinoceros. The course covers the use of surface modeling techniques, the modeling of student projects and/or existing products and the rendering techniques.
