Throughout the following lessons you will be guided through the basic tools and interface of Rhino. We will cover simple 2D CAD including curves and basic shapes as well as how to edit and trim them in order to make simple drawings.

Lessons will progress to building 3D geometry with simple to intermediate techniques. Using a basic lamp design project we will cover all the techniques necessary to produce non-organic models for product design as well as covering Rhinos menus and editing tools.

By the end of the tutorial you should be able to create simple 2D and 3D objects using most of Rhino's modeling techniques and have a reasonable understanding of how to take on similar projects.
