I rang up Rhino when first deciding what CAD prog to get, explaining in great detail what data I had to work with, the accuracy required, the making of aircraft frames and the need to model metal twists and bends, as parts are, as we know, given angled bends to turn sheet metal into rigid structures. I was told Rhino was the tool, no mention was made of T splines. I set about reading through both manuals levels 1 and 2 yet a lot of what I am discovering is available since I dont recall reading about, As soon as I get this job which requires a 15 hr day done, I shall be at the learning desk.
In an ideal world I would have liked to have just been learning, then when enough knowledge under my belt, set at the first job, but instead I am having to work flat out on deadlines etc before that has happened.
It should provide enough accuracy for your project. Much more so than the mess you are currently making in Rhino
My mess if thats how bad it is is disappoiting to me as I work so hard, at PC not 7 hrs but 15 a day on Rhino, if I had had a chance of learning it more before starting the job then there would be less mess. The mess i make though has been used on output successfully, its not a bad mess by some standards. I would like to see how it compares to others learning rhino, what mess they manage. Some might say to themselves thatll do, I dont know that level of finishing, I want to be precise, though have to bear in mind I am told 1 or 2mm inaccuracy is ok and aim for that by client.
The Sky tutorials are going to be great. Finding that at my first google was sheer luck.
I wish I knew where chapter 1 page 1 existed on the things I need to learn. I have now levels 1 and 2 V5 stashed away.
I am not sure if they come with exercise and videos, I trust they do. I had to have printed off the V4 pdf.
I also had Rhino VisualTips Video 4.0
I need however to see tools and methods used on real life examples.
It is important when learning to follow a thought out and structured course, diving into videos on youtube with varying quality of recording and narrative is messy.
Sky I hope follows ideal teaching methods.
I would like to find out more about what McNeel have created following the correct teaching route approach.
Are you aware of where one would get such an approach, chapter 1 page 1… on T splines additional to Sky or he the best for this correct route into understanding T splines ?
Am I right in saying T splines is not native to Rhino but a plugin ? maybe thats why I am not aware of them and wasnt told about them from the outset.
Maybe McNeel havent a tutorial section on them if so ? I havent looked yet to see if they have.
