Master the ins and outs of building curved surfaces and organic shapes while sharpening your knowledge of the mathematics used in contemporary computer-aided engineering applications. Inside Rhinoceros provides readers with an all-inclusive introduction to 3D computer modeling using the newest release of Rhinoceros- Rhino, Release 2- with special emphasis on understanding NURBS surfaces and boundary-representation methods. Real-world projects and step-by-step Rhino tutorials acquaint novices with key features and functions of the software, which is rapidly gaining acceptance in the corporate market as well as in the classroom. These hands-on exercises provide a direct path to learning how to generate free-form NURBS curves for creating surfaces and solids, construct polygon meshes for coping with other applications, and outputting photo-realistic images and 2D production engineering drawings from 3D objects.
