Overview


This well-designed introduction to using the latest version of Rhino bridges the gap between theoretical and software-oriented approaches to computer modeling by providing a balanced presentation of theory, concepts, and hands-on tutorials. Beginning with an overview of the Rhinoceros 4 interface, the book progresses to explore wireframe models and the construction of curves. Coverage continues with an in-depth examination of surface modeling, taking readers step-by-step through surfaces construction using Rhino. Detailed discussions are then provided on solid modeling methods, rendering, engineering drawing, and outputting to various file formats. Coverage concludes with a set of projects aimed at the application of Rhino in real world design situations.

I purchased Inside Rhino 4 after having bought Inside Rhino 2 a few years ago. Very disappointed in the rev 4, barely any tutorials, and little in the way of useful info/direction. Of the 700+ pages, I found only a handful of pages to be of any value. Save your money and sign up for some Rhino training instead. There are many good tutorials available on the web also.
