FabLab London is all about giving your creativity an outlet by equipping you with the tech and training. That's why we're excited to present a workshop to learn about one of the best software design tools in the world – Rhino.
This event is a comprehensive introduction to one of the most powerful 3D CAD tools used in practically every design and manufacturing industry – and it’s taught by a Rhino guru, an international award-winning inventor, Bryan Oknyansky.
In this workshop you'll learn the basics of thinking and designing in 3D using Rhino.
Whether you've never used or opened the software, or if you've opened it and tried to use it a bit but didn't really get anywhere with it, or if you've already had some training and you think learning from a designer could help you, Bryan is going to teach you things in this one workshop that will get you to believe in yourself as a designer and maker.
No matter what you plan to use Rhino for, Bryan will teach you:

Here he is on the BBC showcasing his amazing creations, all made in Rhino:
1. A laptop with at least 1GB of RAM and 600MB of space on it (not a whole lot) running Windows (XP, Vista 7 or 8) or Mac OS X (although Windows is recommended so Mac users running Windows on Boot Camp will have a better experience). Here it all is from the Rhino's mouth: https://www.rhino3d.com/new/admin#system
