a place to shine a light on the work of students and teachers
Some of my thoughts as I put these sessions together: (some one-liners)
"Tips, Tricks, Clarifications" was the phrase I posted on the whiteboard. All of us gather this stuff as we watch another person model. Have a notepad handy so you can jot down some of these things for your own learning. How about using 'Notes' command in Rhino for this?
Chronology: curves, surfaces, polysurfaces: Clean curves lead to clean surfaces ... lead to clean polysurfaces ... give you clean meshes or whatever geometry your output tool requires.
Clean = Keep it Simple. Accurate. Use Rhino constraints of Distance and Angle. Remember "Pick = LMC [Left Mouse Click]" (My opinion: the most important concept LEFT-OUT of the Rhino training materials).
Command line options: Keep your eye glued to them and try them. You will know what they will do for you. Command Help: This needs to be the 'panel' that is obvious when you are practicing new commands.
Status-Bar Buttons: right click on these buttons takes you directly to the settings for the buttons (rather than using Options command and trying to find the settings).
Vports are actually this: Vports and Cplanes. Each cplane has its own xyz for ease of construction and navigation.
Fillets, Blends, ExtractSrf, Remodel the model, Trims and Splits, etc
Just the thoughts as I generated the content for these two sessions. Remember Bob's two ear theory.
