Hello all, I just downloaded my 90 day student trial version for rhino. I’m coming over from Fusion 360, where it’s been nothing but one issue after another (I’ve spent more time in the help forum, than actually making anything in the program…Extrude this, then offset plane, then this and that just to make a set of grating edges for a cheese grater), so after a week of getting absolutely nowhere, and the help forums where no one actually helps you with the issue, I’ve hopped over to rhino, because I hear it’s more friendly towards industrial designers who just want to make a workable model of a product.
My few questions are this:
1.) What image file works when I want to insert an image to trace with P-lines? I’ve tried searching for images online and saving them to desktop, but can’t seem to open them in the software?
2.) What is the best source for tutorials? I tried watching the videos in the rhino “tutorials” section, but the guy who has them posted has a laggy computer and a horrible mic.
3. If I want to make cutting edges like seen in the uploaded image from a fusion 360 model I (somewhat made), what would be the best tutorial source for that as well?
I’m pretty much done and dusted with fusion and autodesk as a whole. I don’t like spending 30 hours to learn something that should take a few hours to learn. I understand rhino has a ton to learn as well, but I want to simply make models of my designs and render them. I don’t have the time or the willingness to sit there and learn 5,000 commands to make a box that offsets to join into a slot.
It also doesn’t help Autodesk that I see nearly ZERO job postings that call for fusion 360, but almost all of them ask for rhino and solidworks (two programs people have stated are much simpler in use compared to fusion).
Any help would be awesome! Thank you!
