Rhinoceros 3D Quick Start Training Course For Beginners.

Welcome, dear visitor!
If You have reached this page, then You probably are in one of the following situations:
You need to learn the Rhinoceros 3D and You are lost in the abundance of proposals and teachers.
Well, it's no wonder - today in the global network there are a lot of trainers and a lot of tutorials. And often the beginners first trying to understand the program by themself, getting information from free Internet sourses. But in the network there are almost no lessons, united in a single logical system - just a huge amount of separate videos from a huge amount of different authors! And whole the life is not enough to view them all!

This course is such a system in which the lessons are united as by the narrative logic, as by the associative relationship wich can be traced throughout the learning process. It allows to transform this process in a fascinating journey through the Universe of Rhino! All this course was developed as a single entity and is intended to cover all the major aspects of Rhino and to give an understanding of the philosophy of the program.

You are not willing to pay crazy money to learn the basics of working in this wonderfull program.
Often it happens that trying himself in a new activity the man soon realizes that this is not his vocation. With studing Rhino the things are exactly the same! Not everybody, trying for the first time to do 3D modeling, decide to associate all his life with this activity! So what is the sense to throw hundreds or thousands of dollars to study the craft which You may will never be engaged?

In general I have to admit that the Rhinoceros 3D is not so hard to learn - it is extremely comfortable, well-designed and user-friendly program. And that is why the crazy at times price lists for passing a basic course in this program - in fact bad justified. But this product has a nominal price in compare with any other similar proposals, although superiors them almost in everything. This is the best opportunity to try a new specialty.

How is Your fantasy?!
The question may seems strange, but it has a direct bearing on our conversation!
So, imagine Yourself for a moment in the cabin of a spaceship - around You there are hundreds of various buttons, sensors, displays, switches, levers, etc! And the most terrible thing is that you were appointed a pilot and said: "Take off!" I felt this way myself, for the first time I discovered Rhino. That's why I perfectly understand how terrible You are now! This is now I am the Ace-pilot and able to perform aerobatics figures on this ship that are practically inaccessible to anyone else. But at one time I also just sat there staring in horror at the dashboard!

Well, now imagine yourself a pilot, even if not an Ace, but at least passed the initial flight training, and at least knowing how to take off, how to operate this huge spacecraft and how to land it! Imagine that all these buttons, panels and data windows now do not represent a great difficulties for You - You know exactly what they are for and what You need to do with them - You calmly lead Your imaginary spaceship to the goal thought the endless 3D space, feeling complete confidence in Your abilities!

Have You imagined both of these situations? So, the first situation is what You are experiencing now - before the studing the Rhino Starter, and the second - is how You will feel after - easily, calmly and confidently - You are not yet an Ace, but already not a kettle! This is Your ship! You feel here quite comfortable and perfectly oriented on it! Even supernumerary situations can not nock You out of the rut, because You were taught how to behave in the event of the majority of undesirable incidents. From now on - You are a confident Rhinoceros user!

Just imagine - only 6 hours ago You have run the program and have no idea where to start. And now You can easily manage this machine! Hard to believe? But it really is! As I said, Rhinoceros is not very difficult to learn if You are lucky with the instructor. By the way, about the instructor...

let's get acquainted!
My name is Vitaly Kavaz-ogly.
I am from Russia, where well-known as a jewelry 3D-modeler and a teacher of Rhinoceros and T-Splines in 3D jewelry. The argument is not very convincing, but I'm just starting to reach the international level, and therefore all is still to come. And in spite of this at home I acquired the experience in 3D jewelry with Rhinoceros since 2005 working on different jewelry factories, and later as a freelancer. I'm busy in Rhinoceros and T-Splines trainings since 2012 and during that time managed to create many courses on these programs for both beginners and professionals with a solid experience. This course is the first stage of my training system and that is why I decided to translate it first.

Also during this time I have created about 200 free lessons on various aspects of work in Rhino and other programs used in jewelry. These lessons are on my russian Youtube channel and you are unlikely will be able to reap all the benefits viewing them, but I'm thinking on translate some of them in the future. The same applies to articles from my russian blog which I kept from 2011 to 2016. Also I have specialized education - in 2009 I've graduated from the Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts as in Jewelry designer. In general, all of these things - jewelry design, jewelry 3D modeling, and Rhinoceros - are associated in my mind together and formed a kind of specific professional alloy.

That's why I consider that I have a right to teach You something!
What I can offer?
Not so much, but also not a few - a training system for a beginner of 26 video lessons of excellent quality,
which will help You to make a quick start in Rhinoceros:
And how about getting acquainted with the content of the course?
So, let's take a more detailed look at each lesson.
Study tour.
In this introductory video I will briefly talk about this course and its main features. Also I will organize a short digression into the history of the appearance of the Rhinoceros 3D. This is very unusual and interesting story and You should know it befor we start!
Preflight briefing.
In the second video lesson we'll talk about the three main approaches used in 3D modeling - sculpting, polymodeling and NURBS modeling - and analyze the features of each of them. In addition, we will consider the most popular specialized packages for creating jewelry 3D models and answer the question why the vast majority of jewelry 3D modelers predominantly use Rhinoceros.
At the helm in the cockpit.
Well, here came the time to open Rhino! Starting with this lesson we will study directly the program itself and begin as is commonly done with overview of main elements of the interface. Also as a part of this lesson we will talk about such useful thing as context help topics which help beginners to understand Rhino even better.
Pre-launch preparations.
After a cursory overview of the interface we need to change some settings of the program in order to make the process work in Rhino more comfortable and more stable. In particular we will deal with the starting templates and produce a number of as a purely visual as system optimizing settings.
Everyone take your seats!
Once we understand the basic settings, it's time to get acquainted with an abundance of interface control elements. In this lesson we will examine the major groups of tabs and tools which in the future will most often be used in the work.
In this video we will examine the principles of work of the simplest tools to create basic geometry in the scene - points, lines and curves - as well as consider a number of additional tools that allow us to work with these types of objects Also we'll explore several additional concepts that will be useful to us in the future.
In this lesson we will continue the gradual deepening into the work of the Rhino tools and this time learn how to create a more complex geometry, such as surfaces and solids. In addition we will examine a number of tools that allows to extract curves from the resulting objects in a variety of ways.
This time we will examine the simple ways of objects manipulations - move, rotate, scale, etc. Also, in this video we will briefly look at the work of one rather important set of tools - object snaps - which could make the modeling process more accurate and verified.
Well, we got directly to the practice! To this point we have quite enough knowledge in order to create a primitive sketch of the wedding ring, and to do this we will use all the previous lessons skills.
The observation of the celestial bodies.
In this lesson we will discuss the objects shading modes, i.e. them depends on how we see the objects in the scene and how it will be convenient for us the process of working on our model. Also we again refer to the settings below to add the interactive analysis to our modes.
The observation of the celestial bodies.
In this lesson we will discuss the objects shading modes. These modes determine how we see the objects in the scene and how convenient will be the process of working on our model. Also we again refer to the program settings to add the interactive analysis to our workflow.
The celestial bodies and their properties.
Now it's time to talk about the types of objects in Rhino. Some of these types are basic and do not require special explanation, but some still deserve special attention, because the understanding of some of the nuances, peculiar only to NURBS geometry, in the future largely determines the understanding of various mechanisms of the program.
The diversity of the celestial bodies.
In this lesson we will continue talking about the different types of objects in Rhino defined by the nuances of their structure, and in addition, we will analyze in detail the tools centered on the Selection panel, as this knowledge will help us to get quick access to different objects in the scene, based on their types.
The controlled space chaos.
This time in order not to get lost in the abundance of all kinds of objects in our scene, we will discuss the various principles of organization of these objects. In particular in this lesson we will look at tools such as layers, groups, and hiding clusters. All this will help us to organize the chaos happening in the scene.
Attack of clones!
In this video we will talk about different ways of copying and cloning objects. Besides the usual copying function, which, by the way, is organized very well in Rhino, we will examine the tools for creating arrays of objects duplicates, and some tools, which work results are the modified copies of the original objects.
The Empire strikes back.
After there was a great variety of various clones and copies in our scene, we have the opportunity to see on specific examples the work of numerous of simple Rhino modifiers. And we will do it right now in this lesson.
The combat maneuvering.
In this lesson we will continue the analysis of the modifiers with respect to our clones and get acquainted with much more complex tools than those we previously considered. However, these tools are also included in the basic arsenal of every 3D modeler, so we can't lose sight of them.
The experiments on the dissection of the celestial bodies.
In one of the previous tutorials we have already acquainted with the concept of trimming, but it is a very broad concept that permeates through almost the entire process of working on the model and defines the behavior of the majority of mechanisms of the program. In this lesson, we will explore this concept.
The experiments on the hybridization of the celestial bodies.
Continuing the theme of trimming we gradually crept to the so-called Boolean operations, which are essentially nothing more than an extended version of the concept of trimming. In this lesson we will not only examine the theoretical aspects of these types of operations, but we'll talk about where they are best applied.
The experiments on producing new forms of life.
So having done a long way nevertheless we finally reached the basis of bases - the surfaces creating tools. Primarily by the help of these tools creating the three-dimensional shapes in our virtual space. In this lesson we will examine the basic principles of these tools.
The other experiments in open space.
Because the surfaces creation tools are the basis of the entire modeling process, it is not possible to take them all in one lesson. So in this video we continue the consideration of this subject, and also briefly look at another important for Rhino 3D modeler concept.
We're making History!
In this lesson we'll look at such a powerful tool in Rhino like History. The History or, to put it correctly, historical dependencies can not even be fully called a tool - rather, it is an option, or a setting, or even a basic property of a program that, at our choice, can determine the operation of other tools and interact with objects in an unusual way.
The map of the starry sky.
This time we will talk about much simpler things, such as inserting references into the scene. This is necessary in order to be able to draw our sketch by contour right in the program window. In Rhino 5 there are two basic ways to solve the task. In this lesson we will look at both.
Laying down on the reverse course.
Often during the workflow our manipulations can lead to not quite the same result that we initially expected. And then we will need to cancel our last actions, going back a few steps to repeat everything by the new, but better. And it's impossible without tool for canceling actions, or, more accurately, without knowing the main principles of it's operation and settings.
Normal or emergency landing?
The logical outcome of the completion of the work on the model is it's saving. In this video, we'll talk about the regular ways of saving, about autosaving and about various options for emergency saving. Also I will give a couple of tips on how to protect yourself from possible damage or loss of the scene.
The overview of additional dockable modules.
In the process of working with the program, you will soon come across the fact that you will no longer have enough basic Rhino functionality. From this lesson you will learn how to expand this functionality. Also here I will demonstrate the capabilities of one of the most powerful Rhino plug-ins called T-Splines and tell why I find it indispensable when working on creating 3D models of jewelry.
Through hardship to the stars!
So our video course is over! I hope it really will become for you the carrier rocket, which will lead you to the orbit of 3D jewelry in the shortest possible time! In this video I want to share with you three components of success in our specialty and give a farewell parting word!
To be continued
Also I working on course update right now to add some lessons about new Rhino 6 & 7 features inmortant for the beginners! All updates are free for every student - lifetime!

Yes, it's time to look at the cost!
As You can see, the price of this truly cosmic product is not cosmic at all!
And it is incommensurable with the value that You will get as a result.
Frequently asked questions.
Read carefully before making a final purchase decision!
How long after payment and in what form will I receive the course?

All the video courses presented on this site are currently NOT physical boxes or disks, but are digital products or online trainings that are avaliable online only (You will need the internet connection to watch the video). All 3D boxes are created only for the purpose of page decoration!

Sending the physical version of goods is not carried out, and payment by cash on delivery is not accepted. The course can be purchased only in electronic form after a 100% prepayment.

Immediately after confirming the fact of payment, you will receive instructions for downloading the course and the activation key.

In the case of payment by a plastic card or by PayPal all the actions specified in the previous paragraph occur in a fully automated mode - this is the fastest way to access information.

How many times can I activate the course and what happens if I lose the key?

You can activate your copy of the course on three different computers an unlimited number of times. After the initial activation, all lessons will be opened automatically, without requiring the key to be entered.

In the case of a rollback or reinstallation of the operating system, you will again need to enter the activation key the first time you start the course, but the number of activations will not decrease. The binding is done to the hardware, not to the operating system. With this approach the three activations would absolutely enaught for several years.

If you lost the key, but you are sure that the number of activations is not used, contact me. And if you are in the client base, your key will be sent to you for free. Make sure that as the return address you left - is the e-mail address that issued the order.

On which operating systems and on which devices will I be able to take the course?

The course can be run both on Windows OS and Mac OS. On other operating systems the course will not start!

Also You will be able to watch the course on an ordinary computer or a laptop running Windows, without any problems. However, you will not be able to view lessons on tablets and mobile devices. This is a shortage of the devices themselves, not the course.

Can I watch the course on a monitor with a small resolution?

Unfortunately no! If you have a very small screen or an extremely low resolution of the monitor, the video will not be displayed correctly. The size of the videos in this course is 1600x900 px. This resolution is chosen so that all elements of the program interface can be seen as clearly as possible. Therefore, if you do not have a normal monitor, you should refrain from buying the course.

However, still, think about such a question - how are you going to be engaged in 3D-graphics, having a low-quality monitor - any designer wants to acquire a monitor of the largest possible size and resolution - this is just the case when the size matters, because from it's depends on the comfort of work. Therefore, regardless of whether you purchase this video course or not, be sure to purchase a large quality monitor!

How quickly can I master Rhinoceros at this course?

The course itself, as you already know, lasts 6 hours. During these 6 hours you will get a full understanding of the overall picture, but do not expect that, after reviewing the last lesson, you will immediately master the program! Of course, during the viewing videos you will have to immediately repeat some of my actions and experiment with the tools, as well as practice a lot independently, using the knowledge gained in the course.

Here, as in any new case, all depends on how quickly you learn the unknown information - someone, as it says, grasps on the fly, and someone needs more time. Maybe at first you will not always understand what I'm talking about, but it's normal. In this case, just revise the incomprehensible material several times after a while and at one point everything will become clear. This is the property of the human brain - to master information, "digesting" it gradually.

On average, with constant practice, you should master Rhino at this course in about 1-3 weeks.

And if I'm an architect or a designer, will the course suit me?

Since this is a basic course that reveals the fundamental principles of working with the program, it does not matter which sphere you are from, even though the course is written down on examples from a jeweler. For a quick start in Rhino, this course will suit you no matter what your specialization.

So, it's time to Your quick start in Rhino!

The course price of Your boost start in Rhino is:
