Is there a mac version of the Rhino Training Manual level 1?

title says it all, but I need at least 20 characters for this to be a valid post

Hi Gijs,
We will be doing one for Rhino 6 Mac Level 1 Training Guide. It is in the works, but and be available a few months after the Rhino 6 for Mac shipping.

There is a Rhino for Mac Users guide.

The Rhino Level 1 training guide can be used with the Mac version with these exceptions:

  • Replace the interface section with the Interface material in the User Guide
  • Rendering as well as other interface tips see the many Getting Started videos for Mac
  • Layouts: see this video for the Help

We do have a training series on-demand rental, if you feel that 24 hours of Rhino for Mac Level 1 training would be helpful to you.

Once you know about the UI and command access in the Mac, the rest of the Rhino modeling, advanced surfacing, 3D modeling concepts and procedures are the same. Many users have both versions and switch between the two platforms as required without issues, since the 3DM file format is shared.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Sincerely,
Mary Ann Fugier

Hi Mary Ann, thanks for the detailed answer. It’s not for me personally, I’ve been using Rhino since 1999 and been following the Mac version pretty much from the beginning. It is indeed no big issue to switch between the versions. The reason I ask is because I am now teaching Rhino at a design school where the majority of people have a Mac laptop. (About 90%)
So I think I’ll stick with the Rhino 5 TM for Windows for now and use the parts of the Rhino for Mac manual as you suggested.
